New Zealand has passed the 90% vaccination goal.
Yesterday, Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins announced the milestone at a special press conference.
The 90% rate means nearly 3,800,000 people have rolled up their sleeves for two Pfizer doses. The news comes following the three DHBs in Auckland’s metropolitan area reaching the target.
Seven of the country’s 20 DHBs have now reached 90% double-vaccination, and a handful of others are on track to reach the target in the next few days.
Hipkins also announced that 94% of the eligible population nationwide have had their first dose.
