Director General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield says the death of a teenager after having the Covid vaccine is "very sad" and "quite sudden".

He says the Covid Independent Safety Monitoring Board found the death is likely vaccine-related but there is still some doubt.

Dr Bloomfield also passed on a message from the teenager's family.
