A suggestion more should be done to remove barriers for people wanting to get the Covid jab.

It comes as the Group 4 rollout begins today, with people aged 60 plus, now able to book an appointment.

That's despite many in Group 3 who say they still haven't received their jabs.

Auckland University vaccinologist Helen Petousis-Harris says Kate Hawkesby vaccination centres need to be more approachable and accessible.

“These clinics aren’t generally places that people find themselves comfortable in; I do think you have to find other ways to reach people.”
