    A claim the health system needs to do more to help Maori parents get their children vaccinated

    A claim the health system needs to do more to help Maori parents get their children vaccinated


    In Counties Manukau, on-time immunisation coverage for Maori eight-month-olds fell from 85-percent last May to 68-percent this year.

    A report found racism and cultural incompetence in the health system were barriers to immunisation.

    National Hauora Coalition Clinical Director Rawiri Jansen believes Plunket should also take some blame.

    He says some parents are put off from judgemental workers.
