Working with vulnerable clients means it is vital that we do everything in our power to protect them and keep them safe. Being vaccinated means you are far less likely to catch and transmit the Covid virus, therefore you are helping to break the chain of infection and most importantly, keeping our clients protected.
Vaccination is our country’s primary means of keeping ourselves, our whanau and our communities safe. That is why we are supporting and implementing the vaccination mandate for all of our staff.
You can get evidence of your vaccination status online through the Ministry of Health ‘My Covid Record’ or by asking your GP for a record of vaccines.
Unfortunately, this mandate means if you have not received both doses of the vaccine you will be unable to work in healthcare or support the vulnerable and disabled people that need help. If you are anxious or unsure about getting the vaccine, one of our experienced staff would be happy to chat with you and answer all questions around the safety and importance of getting vaccinated. So please reach out if you need.
We are all in this together, let’s help keep NZ safe!
