Māori vaccination rollout stalls:

'Final wall of resistance'

Independent researcher and analyst Dr Rāwiri Taonui said Māori and community health providers have narrowed the gap between national and Māori vaccinations from 25 percent five months ago to 9 percent for those aged 12 and over.

More than 114,000 Māori aged 12 and over had been vaccinated since 1 November, but the rollout was now slowing significantly with fewer first and second vaccinations being reported in many district health board areas.

"The numbers ... suggest that the vaccination effort has run into firm resistance in the last 10 percent to 20 percent of Māori," Taonui said.
