Our position on vaccinations

On Friday 1 April 2022, the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Committee of Te Pūkenga Council considered and approved an update to our Mandatory Vaccination Position Statement.


The updated Position Statement states that unless required by a risk assessment or legislation, proof of vaccination status is not required for kaimahi, ākonga or visitors to enter Te Pūkenga workplaces. We will continue to follow proof of vaccination requirements for any third parties we interact with.
