From today the Ministry of Health has made a change to how it reports vaccination numbers administered to date in this statement.

Rather than reporting doses administered,it now reports people vaccinated. For example, under the previous reporting, today’s first dose number would have been 4,000,409. Today the number is 4,035,915.
