A Kaitāia GP is calling for greater Covid-19 vaccine uptake in Māori children as Omicron continues to spread across the country.
Around 31.4 per cent of children in Northland aged between the ages of five and 11 have been at least partially vaccinated since the rollout for the age bracket began on January 17.
However, when solely looking at the vaccination rate for Māori children, the uptake drops to just 21.9 per cent - the lowest vaccine uptake for children in the country.
