A leading Maori health advocate is ropeable about how the vaccine rollout is tracking.

More than 2.55 million doses of the vaccine have been administered, 934 thousand of which are second doses.

Clinical Director at National Hauora Coalition Rawiri Jansen says we need to vaccinate the most vulnerable community faster.

He says if we are vaccinating Pakeha over the age of 65 we need to vaccinate Maori over the age of 40 to make sure that group is protected.
