Covid-19 Vaccination Policy

6 May 2022

Tai Poutini Polytechnic Vaccination Policy Review

Following review of our current Covid-19 Vaccination Policy including considering feedback provided and a risk assessment, the decision is that we will remove the requirement for vaccinations but continue with the requirements for mask use and social distancing. 

The position, effective from Monday 16th May, will be that:

  1. Unless required through legislation, proof of vaccination status will not be required to enter any TPP campus or site. 
  2. The TPP Policy 1.17 – Covid-19 Vaccination Policy will be temporarily suspended effective from Monday 16th May 2022.
  3. Other measures (wearing of masks, social distancing, staff room restrictions, ventilation, etc.) will remain in place in the interim.  These will be reconsidered when the indicator trends, particularly on the West Coast, start to trend down. 

Thank you for your continued support and compliance to the process and the procedures.  The health and wellbeing of all our staff and students is at the forefront of this decision. 

Further updates will be posted on
