Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins says 66,296 doses of the Pfizer vaccine have been administered as of last night.

About 52,183 New Zealanders had received a dose, while 16,483 had received both, Hipkins said at a media update this morning.

For the next couple of months he expected 7000-8000 people to be vaccinated each day.

The Government aimed to ramp up to 50,000-60,000 vaccinations a day, Hipkins said.

Auckland University Professor of MedicineĀ Des GormanĀ told Mike Hosking it has been a clumsy process so far.

"The people I have talked to say there's about ten people involved in each person getting an injection."
