Covid-19: Authorities not sure which border workers vaccinated

From Morning Report, 7:36 am on 9 April 2021

Government plans to move unvaccinated managed isolation workers into low risk roles have run into a major problem - health authorities can't be sure which staff haven't had the jab.

MIQ and border staff are first in line to be offered Covid-19 immunisation but some have decided not to share their vaccination status with their employers.

This comes after a security guard at the Grand Millenium Hotel tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday, and it transpired they'd missed two vaccine appointments for 'personal reasons'.
