More border workers could lose jobs for not getting vaccinated | RNZ News

Since Saturday, it has been mandatory for anyone working at the border to have had at least their first jab, under the Covid-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order.

It has already been revealed that nine Customs workers have lost their jobs as a result of their decision to not receive the vaccine.

New figures provided to RNZ from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) showed 97.4 percent of the nearly 5000 people who work within MIQ have received the vaccine.

MBIE said of the 127 workers who had not yet been vaccinated, 23 were booked in to receive their first dose.

That leaves more than 104 workers. Fifteen of these were unable to be vaccinated for a health reason. Thirteen were undergoing a “process that may lead to termination”.
