At present in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, all students applying for entry to a health programme are highly recommended to be vaccinated against COVID-19. All health sector organisations engaging health care workers have obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 to take all reasonable steps to eliminate, or otherwise control, the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace. The New Zealand Government has mandated the vaccine for frontline health care workers. Many of the health care providers we work with are requiring their staff, including any students on placement, to be vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination. As more providers follow suit, if you are unvaccinated or if you choose not to disclose whether or not you are vaccinated or to provide evidence if asked, then this will have an impact on healthcare placements that you can be allocated to as part of your undergraduate health programme and will have an impact on successful completion of the programme.
