Mandatory vaccinations  

All staff members who work in early learning services will be required to have a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by 15 November 2021 and be fully vaccinated by 1 January 2022.

This applies to all anybody who works on site in early learning including relief teachers, casual staff, administration staff, caretakers, and cleaners – whether direct employees or employees of a contractor.

It also applies to unpaid workers, such as volunteers and any members of the community who are regularly on site at your early learning service as they are likely to come into contact with children.

The Ministry of Health have provided vaccine information for New Zealanders here.
