Tçnâ koe Doris
 
Thank you for your email of 10 June 2024, asking for the following
information under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act):

The Covid-19 Vaccine and Immunisation Programme Steering Group of Tuesday,
10 August 2021, chaired by Dr Ashley Bloomfield – Agenda item 10b, update
given by Rachel Mackay, which states ….... “The two pilot employers
(Mainfreight, Fonterra) will both have completed their first round by 11
August. The Ministry will debrief with both on the learnings from these
pilots.” Rachel Mackay still works for Te Whatu Ora. Would you kindly
provide the information please which is referenced in these
minutes [1]https://aus01.safelinks.protection.outlo...

This email is to let you know that Health NZ needs more time to make a
decision on your request.

The Act requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no
later than 20 working days after the day we received your request.
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit and we are
therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our
decision, to 6 August 2024 at the latest.

This extension is required because the consultations necessary to make a
decision on your request are such that a proper response cannot reasonably
be made within the original time limit.

If you have any questions, please contact us
at [2][email address].

If you are not happy with this extension, you have the right to make a
complaint to the Ombudsman. Information about how to do this is available
at [3]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or by phoning 0800 802 602.
