Key Points

  • Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson vaccines are recognized by the government for individuals employed on or around the border of New Zealand


The government of New Zealand announced that it would recognize more COVID-19 vaccines under the country’s current Vaccinations Orders beginning October 28, 2021. The three vaccines will include Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), in addition to the already recognized Pfizer vaccine.

What’s Changed?

Previously, under New Zealand Vaccinations Order, all workers employed on or around the border were required to be fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine. This new change will allow workers who have been vaccinated abroad to work on or around the border.
