As the wider Whanganui region nears the 50 per cent fully vaccinated mark, the DHB is continuing to encourage unvaccinated residents to book their jab.
In the Whanganui DHB region, 46 per cent of people have been fully vaccinated.
An additional 26.3 per cent have received one dose, meaning the percentage of Whanganui's population that has received at least one dose is now more than 70 per cent.
While the DHB says the rollout is going well, concerns have been raised about the continuing spread of misinformation in the community.
According to a DHB spokesperson, it's fundamental people seek information about the vaccine from reliable sources.
"It is vitally important that every eligible person gets vaccinated, and we urge them to seek out factual information from reliable sources.
"Vaccination is the way to protect themselves, their whānau and the community from Covid-19 and to see an end to lockdowns."
The DHB is urging anyone who is yet to be vaccinated to visit one of the multiple vaccination clinics being held across the region this week.
Those include a number of iwi-operated clinics, as well as some workplaces with vaccination happening on site.
Vaccination appointments can be booked by visiting BookMyVaccine.nz or by calling 0800 28 29 26.
A total of 278 doses were delivered in the Whanganui DHB catchment on Monday, while 40,706 were administered nationwide.
