Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will receive her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by the end of June.
Her chief press secretary confirmed the news to NZ Herald on Tuesday, ahead of the Government's announcement a further 1 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine will arrive in the country in July.
Health Minister Chris Hipkins says the delivery is "great news".
"These consignments will double the total number of Pfizer doses we have received this year to more than 1,900,000 - enough to fully vaccinate almost 1 million Kiwis.
So far, 668,115 Pfizer vaccine doses have been administered - 432,509 first doses and 235,606 second doses.
The rollout is currently focusing on people in priority categories - aged 65 or over, people with underlying health conditions, pregnant people or anyone caring for someone with a disability.
The general public (anyone over the age of 16) will be able to get vaccinated from the end of July.
Hipkins says the country is on track.
"We have vaccinated more people than we had planned for at this point in time and more than 6800 vaccinators have completed the necessary training to administer the Pfizer vaccine."
A number of Ardern's ministers have already received their first doses of the vaccine including Hipkins and Associate Health Minister Ayesha Verrall.
Peeni Henare and Aupito William Sio have also received their first doses.
