'My Vaccine Pass' launched

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 17 November 2021

From this morning, anyone who is fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to request a vaccination pass, dubbed "My Vaccine Pass". Once New Zealand enters the new traffic light system, the pass will be required to enter hospitality venues, and access community, sport and faith-based gatherings. 

Access to essential services like supermarkets, pharmacies, health services and petrol stations will not require a pass. So what exactly how will it work and where do you get one? Kathryn finds out more about the pass from Dr Andrew Chen, a Research Fellow with Koi Tū: The Centre for Informed Futures at the University of Auckland.
