Northlanders have yet to reach the 90% mark of those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
Only 87.8% (141,667) of Northland's eligible population have received their second dose, the lowest vaccination rate among all 21 district health boards.
All other DHBs have hit the 90% vaccination target for second doses.
90.3% of Northlanders have received their first dose and 68.8% have had a booster shot.
Northland currently has 963 active cases and a patient passed away in a Northland hospital yesterday. The person died from an unrelated medical condition and had tested positive for Covid-19.
The Northland iwi collective Te Kahu o Taonui says anti-mandate protests have diminished the work of iwi and local health authorities during the pandemic to keep communities, kaumātua and whānau safe.
