The country's largest Primary Health Organisation ProCare says GPs can help fast-track the Covid-19 vaccine roll out.

National has criticised the rollout as being too slow - saying we're second last in the OECD.

Just over 90 thousand doses have been administered.

ProCare chief Bindi Norwell told Kate Hawkesby they're here to help.

"We've got a large network of GPs who are willing to support the rollout, and if we leverage their capability we can do it much more quickly."

Norwell said that the Government should look to an integrated model.

"We can have large vaccine centres but actually, leverage the GP network to it's best ability, this is what they do every day and they're willing to help where they can."
