As of 2 May 2022, the University of Otago has removed its COVID‑19 vaccination mandate, which was in place in early 2022.

Mandatory vaccinations are required only for the following groups from Monday, 2 May, following the Government Public Health Order:

  • Activities and buildings on our campuses where a Government Health Order still applies (e.g. health services)
  • For staff in Disability Information and Support, as these staff work closely with students at higher risk of severe illness from COVID‑19
  • For researchers (staff and students) working with populations at higher risk of severe illness from COVID‑19 (e.g. people with disabilities or cancer patients)
  • For researchers (staff and students) involved in studying the COVID‑19 virus itself
