NO CONFIRMATION YET ON SCOPE OF GOVERNMENT’S MANDATORY VACCINATION PLAN

This afternoon Minister Chris Hipkins announced a Cabinet decision to require teachers and most healthcare workers to be Covid-19 vaccinated.  The Minister specifically referred to a range of roles in the health sector including paramedics but firefighters were not mentioned.  The Prime Minister referred to those dealing and working with vulnerable New Zealanders.

We understand that FENZ has not been informed of any requirement for firefighters to be captured by a mandatory vaccination order.

We will keep members informed of any confirmation of the scope of the mandatory vaccination orders, what that means for our members.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
