Covid update here and around the globe
Dozens of people waited in line for hours to get Covid-19 vaccines at an Auckland medical centre on Saturday, with some asked to return another day due to a "last minute rush in bookings".
There were long queues at medical centre The Dentist, on Highbrook Drive in East Tamaki, with staff handing out water to those waiting.
Family members of border workers who were waiting for their vaccine said they had faced delays of up to five hours.
A Northern Regional Health Coordination Centre – NRHCC - spokeswoman said delays were caused by a surge in bookings.
The NRHCC offered people the opportunity to get vaccinated at another location or rebook their vaccination.
On Saturday, one new case of the virus was reported in managed isolation, along with one historical case, who is considered recovered.
The new case was a person who returned to New Zealand from India, via United Arab Emirates, on March 23. They tested positive during routine testing on day three of their managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) stay in Auckland.
Meanwhile, Canterbury DHB has apologised after a software error potentially allowed people booking vaccinations to view details about others also making appointments.
The issue was brought to the DHB's attention after a member of the public discovered a security vulnerability in the code which allowed them to view the details.
No private health information had been shared, however the service was suspended on Friday night and an investigation is underway.
The initial investigation found no evidence the breach was malicious.
