New Zealand has moved from an elimination strategy to one of minimise and protect. The Government has introduced a new COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system) to replace the Alert Level system.
Government agencies are undertaking their own health and safety risk assessments to determine if COVID-19 vaccinations are required for their people and for any people (including contractors and suppliers) who access their premises.
Health and safety risk assessments and the decisions made as a result of those assessments are the responsibility of individual government agencies.
Requirements for COVID-19 vaccinations for access to your agency’s premises may impact your suppliers and service delivery. This guidance will help you identify and manage these impacts.
