2 updates from WANZ regarding vaccinations (that may be important to share with whanau)
1. Vaccination timeline
We were asked at the regional hui about the timeline for getting vaccinated and does it match the new COVID Passport process? We have today sought advice from Government and can confirm that the COVID Vaccination passport is available to download the day following your 2nd dose of the vaccine.
This will now enable people wanting to be vaccinated in time to attend regional events, to be vaccinated over a 3 week window. (Instead of the 5 weeks that we had previously outlined)
It is important that people are aware that even though you can use your vaccination passport straight away, full immunisation does not occur until 2 weeks after the 2nd jab so people should exercise some caution and COVID protocols such as masks or social distancing.
2. Under 12
We have been asked by several clubs about what happens if someone turns 12 just before the event and they have no time to get vaccinated (because it takes 3 weeks)
We have asked Government for a solution and today they updated their website wording to now refer to people under 12 years and 3 months being exempt from vaccination. This will give someone time to get vaccinated once they turn 12.
My Vaccine Pass is free to everyone in New Zealand and available from the Ministry of Health. The Vaccine Pass is created from data held in the Covid Immunisation Register (CIR) that records everyone's COVID-19 vaccinations. The system has been designed to keep your details private with vaccination proof securely coded into the QR code.
