About a third of Government's second-priority high-risk group for its vaccine rollout have not had their first jab, while about half are fully vaccinated, according to a report.
BusinessDesk is reporting that as of midnight on Sunday, 228,847 of an estimated 480,000 people in Group 2 have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine in data obtained under the Official Information Act.
The Unite Against Covid-19 website says those in the second group are high-risk frontline workers and people living in high-risk places.
The data outlined 94,420 had received their first dose, leaving an estimated 157,000 of the high-risk group still waiting, BusinessDesk says.

The same report detailed how the rollout to Group 1 - border and MIQ staff and people who lived with them - was almost complete, with more than 6000 awaiting their second dose.
A Ministry of Health spokesperson said authors of the report were directed to publicly available information and they could only assume the data used in the report was sourced outside of the ministry, such as a Government media briefing.
Yesterday, it was confirmed all Aucklanders aged 65 and over will receive a Covid vaccination invite within the next week.
Four new community vaccination centres are also due to open in Albany, Tamaki, Pukekohe and Takanini by the end of June.
More than 110,000 people aged 65+ in the Auckland region will have received an invitation by text or email by Friday.
The invitations will be issued automatically via text message or email, so people will not need to do anything until they receive their invitation.
All remaining Group 3 invitations, including the 164,000 Aucklanders who have underlying health conditions, will be sent by mid-July.
