National is calling on the Government to explain why there aren't more Auckland GPs administering the Covid vaccine.  

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's indicated that about 113 GP practices are administering the vaccine across the region. 

Health spokesperson Shane Reti told Kate Hawkesby it isn't good enough, considering there around 400 practices in the city overall. 

"Why are we making it so hard, these are the people we trust who do 100 percent of vaccines in New Zealand anyway."
