Covid-19 Vaccination Register

Dear Parents/Caregivers

All schools are now required to keep a register of all Covid-19 vaccinated and unvaccinated students attending their school.

This requirement to maintain a register has been issued by the Secretary for Education, under the Education and Training Act 2020.

The Direction requires all registered schools who enrol students over the age of 12 years to maintain an up-to-date register with the Covid-19 vaccination status of eligible students, beginning Monday, 1 November.

To enable us to have accurate records, we would appreciate it if you would provide us with evidence of your son's Covid-19 vaccination. Can you please send this information to us by Friday, 12 November.

Evidence could include:

  • a screenshot of their vaccination record on My Covid Record (for those 16 and over)
  • a vaccination certificate (which can be requested from the Ministry of Health)
  • a letter from their GP

Please DO NOT bring this into school.  Please email a scan or photo of these details to jcullen@hbhs.school.nz

A Privacy Statement which has been issued to Schools by the Ministry of Education regarding our Vaccine Register, is available on request.

Thank you very much for your support, in ensuring that we are able to complete this requirement.
