For Vaccine certificates, there has yet to be an exception process set out. I imagine that will have to be tightly managed. Perhaps only each DHB's Clinical Immunology and Allergy senior doctors being able to issue them.
For the occupations in the "COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021" (Healthcare, teachers, MIQ workers etc), there is an exemption process set out in section 7A.
Key section is:
"(2) An affected person may carry out certain work without being vaccinated if—
(a) the affected person has particular physical or other needs that a suitably qualified health practitioner (in the course of examining the person) determines would make it inappropriate for the person to be vaccinated; and
(b) in any case where the affected person belongs to the group specified in Part 6 of the table in Schedule 2, the relevant PCBU who employs or engages the affected person has provided the register with written confirmation that a suitably qualified health practitioner—
(i) has examined the affected person; and
(ii) has determined that vaccinating the affected person would be inappropriate.
(3) If the affected person is a health practitioner, the examination referred to in subclause (2) must be undertaken by another health practitioner who is suitably qualified to conduct the examination."
The bottom of the issue will be:
Should note that the Nursing council has clarified that only "Nurse Practitioner's" may make this assessment, not A Registered or Enrolled Nurse.
Without knowing what practitioners they have doing the signing, we don't know which body to complain to. Only options I can think of are:
If you can't laugh at yourself then you probably shouldn't laugh at others.
Bung: There are probably so few people genuinely qualifying for exemptions they could be subject to approval rather than handed out by GPs. As an example if you lose your driving licence because of a medical condition any reinstatement goes to the NZTA's medical expert for review.
There are under 200 people in NZ who genuinely would qualify for an exemption on medical grounds, to the point the places my wife (a doctor) works, have all categorically stated they will not provide them at all.
If you call those places, and ask for one you will simply be told you can't get one.
It also doesn't exclude you from workplace requirements.
Just a bunch of con artists making a buck.
The 'certificates' they are signing will be worth less than those that come in rolls of 200 and hang next to your toilet.
maoriboy: Yep. Any idea how to report this and who too?
You could perhaps share it via messenger to NZ Police?
Also use that screenshot and send it via the 105 website https://www.police.govt.nz/use-105
