Change to how we record and report COVID-19 vaccination data

From Monday 8 August 2022, we will be calculating the percentage of people vaccinated using an updated dataset.

The Health System User dataset counts the number of people in New Zealand who have used health services over a 12-month period. This increased by 233,000 in 2021. 

Because the updated dataset is bigger, the percentage of those vaccinated has dropped. However, the number of people vaccinated has not changed.

The dataset will be updated every 6 months so we can provide the most accurate information about vaccination coverage.
