New Zealand’s largest university has confirmed that it will institute a Covid-19 vaccine mandate for all on-campus students and staff, and even for visitors to its campuses, NZ Herald reports. Those wishing to engage in face-to-face learning will need to have both jabs by January 4. Vice-Chancellor Dawn Freshwater said, “We know that some people feel that this may impinge on their freedom of choice, however it’s important to note that the policy does not force anyone to get vaccinated.” Freshwater said the university’s decision “follows the lead of similar leading universities around the globe”. The vice-chancellor also acknowledged the pandemic’s rapidly changing environment and vowed to review the vaccine decision regularly.
