    Two children of Asian descent have reportedly been denied a measles vaccination in Auckland - because they're not Maori or Pasifika

    Two children of Asian descent have reportedly been denied a measles vaccination in Auckland - because they're not Maori or Pasifika


    National Party list MP Melissa Lee told Parliament a Mount Albert resident told her a friend's 5- and 8-year-olds were turned away by a doctor on Monday.

    Lee says their mother offered to pay for vaccinations but the doctor declined because Maori and Pasifika children are the priority.

    She says all children should be equal when it comes to vaccinations.
