Chair of the National Māori Authority Matthew Tukaki received the Covid-19 vaccination jab at the Atrium on Elliott shopping centre in Auckland, Sunday morning.
In a Facebook post, Mr Tukaki promoted a message of hope for frontline workers working hard to keep Aotearoa and its people safe.
It was a smooth run-through as he was guided by an amazing nurse on the details of the vaccine, how it is effective to fight against the virus and how the process works.

Mr Tukaki was wearing his #CutItOut t-shirt while getting the jab. Every Friday he typically does a live stream to his Facebook page and lets go of built-up steam about problems persisting around the country.
“Thank you to the amazing nurse who walked me through everything — was so efficient,” he said.
“Talking with New Zealanders at the centre, it's a real mixed group. The pair who stole my heart was the son who bought his mum in with him, who has lost her sight. With her all the way guiding her and just reassuring her.”
He added that the process was done with so much aroha. “Thank you to our army of frontline health and support crew for keeping us all safe.”
