NMIT COVID-19 vaccination policy

NMIT has suspended their vaccination policy and proof of vaccination is no longer required for anyone studying, working at, or visiting NMIT sites as of Wednesday 13 April. The only exception is those still under the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021.

A shift in the government and community response to the pandemic has led to a review of the 2021 Te Pūkenga position on COVID-19 vaccination mandates. To align with the Te Pūkenga position, the NMIT COVID-19 vaccination policy is to be suspended.

Under the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021 all NMIT nursing and healthcare staff and learners must still receive three doses of the COVID-19 vaccination.

Please discuss any study or health concerns with your tutor or programme area.
