Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern
Prime Minister Jacinda Adern speaks about the percentage of vaccinated Māori and comments on the proposed traffic light system. Whānau Ora and other Māori leaders say DHBs have hindered Māori in getting our people vaccinated. Smaller rural areas like Ngāti Porou set up a Givealittle page on Sunday to buy a mobile vax unit and succeeded but they shouldn’t have needed to do this. DHB’s should have looked at their road map to Māori communities or worked more closely with those Māori communities. Tāmaki Makaurau are feeling the pressure its almost 10 weeks since being in lockdown and we don’t want to go back to Level 4.
