The following is a letter from the boss at my partner’s workplace. It pre-dates the government’s announcement about NZ vaccine passports. It’s so unsettling to see the boss of a workplace becoming a de facto enforcer:


Re Vaccinations

As a Company policy I strongly recommend every member of our team and our extended work community to Vaccinate.

As we are all aware the Question “To Vaccinate” or “Not to Vaccinate” is a choice that is a personal and individual one. Of that there is no debate.

The outcome of an individual’s choice does however determine the safety, the health and livelihood of others.

As we are a Company where we have employees interacting with the public, in the home, in the commercial environment and in the showroom I would like to advocate we are a 100% Covid vaccinated workplace.

We need the combined efforts of each and every team member to achieve that goal.

This will bring a sense of comfort to all our fellow employees and a real sense of safety and compliance to our customers.

We are considering allowing access to our business only to those who are vaccinated.

I also believe that an employee deserves the right to know the Vaccination status of their workmates and also those who they are coming in contact with.

Because this information is at this stage confidential our teams individual vaccination status has not been shared Companywide.

I can however disclose to you that in excess of 95% of our employees and close quarter sub-contractors team have received either both jabs or have had one and are awaiting the other.

When we last communicated you were undecided due to some possible health concerns.

As we are scheduled to reopen the showroom to the public next week I ask, have you reached a decision?

major energy company will no longer employ non-vaxxed staff

I work for a major energy company in NZ we have just received documentation advising staff that they recommend everybody gets vaccinated, but not mandated for existing staff but opportunities to work in certain roles will be restricted if not vaccinated. Also they will not be employing unvaccinated staff from now on. I have documents stating such.

Stroke after vax

A friend’s partner, male, aged 46 fit and healthy had a stroke a few days after the pfizer vax – i believe the 2nd jab. Doesnt remember anything about it and had major short term memory loss for several days after. Recovered now. Coerced into taking it (front line worker) – too scared to speak up.

events in a rest home

Less than 70 y/o man with preexisting conditions (diabetes, cancer) and on anticoagulant had severe body weakness and probable stroke 2 weeks after first dose of covid injection.  Was sent to the hospital and has not come back yet.


A lovely elderly lady on anticoagulant received her second jab on the 25th May and had stroke 01 June. Unresponsive, not expected to recover.

Hospital for 2nd injection

a friend’s wife had a reaction to the first jab, then for the 2nd jab she had to have it given at Wairau hospital here in Blenheim, when they got there they were surprised to see lots of others there getting the same thing in case of reaction, he told my friend it was because so many had had reactions the first time round!


(Ed: please if you reacted to the first injection, don’t go for another round – it’s only going to get worse)

Forms to REJECT vaccine

Did not see any contact info for your website, so my apologies for posting this here … but maybe the forms listed in link below can help people who want to refuse jabs that employers are trying to force.

They can download and print for free:

Also excellent info (same topic) on this video: Refuse jab and keep your job:



I got fired because I refused the shot

I worked for an agency who worked in healthcare and security at the Hastings DHB/hospital and I got a text from my manager on Friday 30th April saying he’ll need to pick up my uniform as they’re all getting their jabs and I can’t work there anymore as he knew I wouldn’t want it. He didn’t offer me any support, or any other shifts. Now they’re not answering my questions. They’ve totally cut me off.

Process for consent

When at appointment for vaccine I was not asked any questions relating to health

They noted I had not signed the form

I said I had a concern because I was on blood thinners

I was basically told I would be fine

I said I had concerns regarding the combination of vaccine and medication

I was offered the chance to discuss this with my  GP and rebook

I took the first offer but did not rebook at this time

My concern is that the consent questions are not being asked or addressed with caution

Aged Care RN

I have just started working in aged care as a part time RN. I already declined the jab but has recently read a memo stating that those who opt not to have the jab would be asked to sign a waiver which includes requiring to use PPE and undergo regular PCR swab testing as per Aged Care NZ. I find this absurd as the supposed vaccine is not even guaranteed to stop one from getting the virus nor does it prevent transmission. am unsure how to navigate this as I have not met anyone yet from the workplace who have declined the jab. I am planning to not sign the waiver when the time comes but not sure what the repercussions would be to my job.

Loss of job if employees are not jabbed Napier NZ

This is a letter which was sent to an aged care worker in Napier.  I was introduced to this middle aged part Maori women by my reliable and concerned Facebook/ Messenger friend Ngaire Maxwell.   I talked with this women by video chat on 29 April.  She has worked for this company (Medcall) for 2.5 years.  She does not want to lose her job so feels pressured into having this injection when her good friends are telling her it is dangerous.

Flu vaccination update

The issue of vaccinations has received a lot of publicity recently as a result of the recent pandemic. Many of our clients have started to indicate to us that in future Medcall staff who are not vaccinated against the flu will not be able to work with and for them. Not being vaccinated could therefore affect the work we are able to provide for you in the future.

Apart from this fact, I strongly believe that the benefits of immunisation cannot be overstated both for keeping yourself safe from disease, and also your family and communities (please see attached fact sheet for more information). As an employer we wish to keep you and your clients safe in a disease free environment and being immunised can help us all achieve that.

As such Medcall is encouraging all its staff to get immunised this 2021 year and is hosting free vaccination clinics in our offices at the following locations once the flu vaccine becomes available:

Auckland region

Napier Palmerston North Wellington region Christchurch

Level 5/55 Anzac Avenue, Auckland CBD, or 18 Saint Marks Road, Epsom.

Unit 2 – 18 MacDonald Street, Mount Maunganui. 94 Raffles Street.
2 Linton St.
125 Naenae Steet, Naenae.

Unit 4 – 106 Carlyle St, Christchurch.

We are expecting the vaccine to be available from the end of May onwards, and we will contact you as soon as we have firm dates to register your attendance.

If you are planning to goto your GP or pharmacy to be vaccinated this year, then please keep your receipt and Medcall will reimburse you for the cost of vaccination. Please email these to

Please also be aware that you may be requested by your local DHB to get immunised against Covid-19. If you receive such a request and it clashes with the above dates and times, please prioritise your Covid-19 immunisation. If you have any concerns or queries regarding any of the above please contact your local Manager or email and someone will be in touch.

I hope to see you at one of the clinics. Kindest regards

Flu fact sheet for healthcare workers1

How serious is influenza?

Influenza can vary from having no symptoms at all, to being extremely severe, even for fit and healthy people. Influenza is a potentially fatal disease, estimated to cause more deaths each year than accidents on NZ roads.
On average up to 401 deaths are estimated to be caused directly or indirectly by influenza virus each year in New Zealand. This estimated death rate is 17 times higher than recorded influenza deaths. Many others can have mild or even asymptomatic flu but can still spread it. The Southern Hemisphere Influenza and Vaccine Effectiveness Research and Surveillance (SHIVERS) serosurvey results show that in the 2015 winter season more than one quarter (26%) of New Zealanders were infected with flu with four out of five of these being asymptomatic (not showing symptoms). These asymptomatic carriers can spread the virus among their family, co-workers and classmates without ever realising it. Children are much more likely to contract influenza in any given season: 20–50% compared with 10–30% in adults. Applying SHIVERS serosurvey data to the New Zealand total population would suggest that in 2015 around: 31,850 people sought help at their general practice and 2,209 were hospitalised.

How contagious is influenza?

Studies have shown that influenza can survive for:

  • An hour or more in the air in enclosed environments.
  • More than eight hours on hard surfaces such as stainless steel and plastic.
  • Up to 15 minutes if transferred from tissues to hands.
  • Up to five minutes after transfer from the environmental surfaces.

    Does influenza vaccine work?

    Like all vaccines, influenza vaccine is not 100% effective in everyone, but in most people it does prevent influenza, or the person has a less severe illness. Generally, flu vaccines are considered to have ‘moderate effectiveness’. Effectiveness rates depend on several factors, including the age and immune status of the recipient, as well as the match between circulating vaccine strains and the vaccine. The findings of a rigorous analysis of 44 years’ worth of studies published online by Lancet Infectious Diseases in 2011, concluded that overall “…existing flu vaccines can provide moderate protection from laboratory-confirmed flu, but protection is much lower in some groups and during some seasons.” According to a 2008 report based on Institute of Environmental Science and Research Ltd. (ESR) surveillance data, influenza-related deaths in New Zealand reduced by more than 70% since 1997 when the vaccination policy changed to offer free flu vaccination for people 65 years and over, resulting in a steady increase of vaccine uptake.

    Does being fit and healthy protect you from influenza?

    Anyone can catch and spread, influenza. Being young, fit and healthy does not protect you from influenza. Immunisation offers the best protection from infection and reduces the spread of the virus to more vulnerable people.

    Can I build up natural immunity to influenza?

    Immunity only develops after you have been exposed to a particular strain of the virus, either through infection or immunisation. Flu immunisation prepares and boosts your immune system to help you fight the particular flu viruses expected to be circulating each year. Immunity against one strain of flu will not necessarily protect you against another.

    You cannot catch influenza from the vaccine

    The current influenza vaccines available in New Zealand do not contain live virus. These vaccines contain fragments of inactivated influenza viruses and cannot cause disease. It can take up to two weeks to be fully protected following vaccination. If you are exposed to influenza virus near the time you are vaccinated, the vaccine may not have time to work before you become unwell.
