It's been a month since all New Zealanders over 12 became eligible for the vaccine and only 55 percent of Māori have had their first dose. 

Less than 50 per cent of eligible Māori have received their first vaccination in Northland, among the worst rates in the country. 

Auckland's Papakura Marae opened the first marae-based drive-through vaccination centre, which also provides provide wrap-around services including a testing centre and food bank. 

Papakura Marae CEO Tony Kake joined Kerre McIvor.
