Health providers want to make sure no New Zealander is left behind in the vaccine rollout.

The government yesterday announced it's bought enough doses of the Pfizer vaccine for everyone, and will soon release an immunisation plan. 

Meanwhile a recent poll commissioned by The Hui shows 65 percent of Māori say they're likely to get the vaccine, but 23 percent say they wouldn't take up the offer.

Māni Dunlop speaks to Hapai te Hauora's chief executive Selah Hart about how to ensure the right information reaches Māori communities.
