Yesterday it was announced that the Māori Uptake of New Zealand's Covid-19 Vaccine Campaign has shown encouragement.

The launch of a dedicated website happened while TV advertisements started to promote the rollout.

The campaign is called “Be a doer! KARAWHIUA” which focuses light on Vaccine hesitancy.

Māori Development Minister, Willie Jackson, praised the response to the rollout so far but encouraged others to do their part.

“We’ve done an exceptional job of protecting our whānau and communities from Covid-19. It’s now up to all of us to ensure we go that extra step and get vaccinated,” Minister Jackson said.

“Many are at the stage of wanting to know more about the Vaccine now that it’s being rolled out.”

“Common questions are about the vaccine’s effectiveness and safety, side-effects, content and development. We want to encourage uptake by getting trusted information out into the community in a way that will resonate with Māori.”

Around 41 per cent of Māori felt they needed to know more information about the Vaccine, while 30 per cent did not exactly understand or know that the Vaccine was free.
