COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

Excerpt from College Sport Bylaws:

4. General Eligibility

4.5 Participating Schools must ensure that their representatives in College Sport Auckland Competitions (individual or team) are fully vaccinated.

4.6 To be fully vaccinated a person must have received all of the doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or combination of COVID-19 vaccines, administered in accordance with the requirements specified for that vaccine or combination of vaccines, as set out in Schedule 3 of the COVID- 19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021.1

4.7 In accordance with clause 9B of the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021, exemptions may be provided by the Director-General of Health, on a case by case basis, where a medical practitioner or nurse practitioner applies, on a student’s behalf, for a COVID-19 vaccination exemption. Where the Ministry of Health has provided an exemption, the CEO must sight and verify its authenticity before the student is eligible to represent their school.

4.8 Failure to ensure that representatives in College Sport Auckland Competitions (individual or team) are fully vaccinated may result in teams forfeiting a match or College Sport Auckland imposing other appropriate sanctions (as set out in Rule 19 of the College Sport Auckland Rules).

Sport NZ has developed advice and guidance about the operation of Play, Active Recreation and Sport under the settings of the COVID-19 Protection Framework (CPF). Other sector organisations have similarly developed their own advice, particularly the Ministry of Education’s advice for schools and kura. This advice will be updated regularly as new government requirements are established.  Click below for further information Sport NZ
