Vaccines and Volunteers


14 October 2021 | Home Items


Vaccines are free for everyone in New Zealand aged 12 and over.
A lot of the advice around vaccines refers to workers. It is important to note, in regards to vaccinations, the term “Workers” includes both paid and unpaid workers.
Vaccines are voluntary and individuals cannot be forced to have a vaccine. Some work environments have mandated vaccination requirements. It is also important to note that in some workplaces a worker may need to be vaccinated to perform a specific role in for health and safety reasons. This must be assessed by each organisation.

Are you prepared if you or your whanau get COVID-19?. Check out the COVIDReadiness Check list and the Whanau Plan.

The key message is that we are here for you. You can reach our three offices the following ways:
