The New Zealand Medical Association has become aware that the group of doctors and other health professionals that have formed the organisation New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out with Science are offering an online clinic to provide COVID- 19 vaccine exemption assessment for people who are under the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination Order.

 We have written to Ministers Andrew Little and Chris Hipkins asking that urgent consideration be given to tightening up the exemption process to ensure the clinical guidelines are followed. This could be achieved by requiring approval of the exemption being given by the Ministry of Health or IMAC on receipt of certified clinical contraindication by the General Practitioner the person is enrolled with.

Our full letter is attached.
