The Government has announced that all teachers and school staff must be vaccinated.

Covid and Education Minster Chris Hipkins made the announcement earlier this week saying that they must be fully vaccinated by 1 January 2022.

Teachers must have had their first vaccination by the 15th November.

Cabinet also announced that secondary schools and kura will be required to keep a vaccine register for students.

Students over 13 who do not produce evidence of vaccination will be considered unvaccinated.

The key reason of this move is that vaccinations for children aged 5 to 11 are not yet approved. Therefore, to ensure their safety vaccination by people who come into contact with this group is important.
