A Māori leader is outraged after David Seymour tweeted a Māori only vaccine code.  

The code allows people to book in or turn up without an appointment at a drive through clinic in West Auckland. 

The Act Party leader argues getting vaccinated shouldn't be a race-based issue.  

The National Māori Authority Chair Matthew Tukaki told Kate Hawkesby his rhetoric is unhelpful.  

"David has completely lost the plot on this, we are trying very, very hard to get the Māori vaccination rate up, as we are trying to get the vaccination rate up for the country more generally."
