Operational Firefighters Vaccination

H Barry made this Official Information request to Jan Tinetti

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for H Barry to read a recent response and update the status.

From: H Barry

Dear Jan Tinetti,

As the Minister for Internal Affairs, you have responsibility for Fire and Emergency NZ.

Can you please advise why operational firefighters, who can spend over a third of their time attending medical calls on the front line (much like paramedics) have not been included on the list of those eligible for an early Covid vaccination. If this is an error, can operational firefighters (which is about 20 percent of the total workforce) be included as a matter of urgency?

Dear Jan Tinetti,

This is long overdue. Unless I hear back within 3 working days, I will be putting in a complaint with the Ombudsman. This was not a detailed nor technical question and your failure to even acknowledge the request is extremely disappointing

Yours faithfully,

H Barry

Dear H Barry,

Thank you for your email to Hon Jan Tinetti, Minister of Internal Affairs, Minister for Women, Associate Minister of Education.

It recently came to our attention that the FYI.org.nz website had the incorrect email address on file for Hon Jan Tinetti, as a result we did not receive your Official Information Act request. We have since notified FYI and asked them to update the contact details.

If you could re-send the original request, we will consider it in accordance with the Act, and will respond in due course.

Kind regards,

Nick Davies | Private Secretary - Executive Support
