The Ministry of Health respects today’s decision in the High Court on the sharing of Māori COVID-19 vaccination data with the Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency (Whānau Ora).

While the Court has commented on aspects of the Ministry’s decision making in making data available to both Whānau Ora and other Māori organisations, it has not directed the Ministry to release all data to Whānau Ora, acknowledging the progress made by the Ministry. The Ministry is required to:

  1. Complete its process of making decisions about providing the data, in those areas where it has not yet agreed to provide data to the applicants.
  2. Review its decision to provide data in relation to those Māori in Te Ika-a-Māui/North Island who have had only a first dose, in light of the Ministry’s publicly announced position in relation to the general population who have had only one dose.
The Ministry is now taking steps to meet those requirements.

The Ministry is currently consulting a number of iwi about data-sharing with Whānau Ora and will inform these iwi of today’s decision.

The Ministry wishes to acknowledge and thank the Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency for their significant contribution to the overall effort to raise Māori vaccination rates across Te Ika a Māui.

Māori health providers who don’t already have access to specific, local data should talk to their usual DHB contact or to the Ministry.

Background information​

Since September, the Ministry has been sharing data with Whānau Ora about people who are unvaccinated and enrolled with Whānau Ora services.

The Ministry has been open to continuing to share data with WOCA, including individual level data where appropriate. Specifically, we could see the merit of providing smaller sets of personal information with WOCA for specific locations, with an expectation that providers will work together to reach the unvaccinated populations.

  • It was important to include iwi in the Ministry’s decision-making process for new data-sharing agreements, and the Ministry has consulted iwi across the North Island.
  • The Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency requested that the High Court direct the Ministry to provide data identifying every Māori in Te Ika a Māui (the North Island) who is not fully vaccinated. The Ministry had declined to provide this data, on the scale requested.

Wholly shit look at the anger in this guys eyes does this alarm people at all
Am pro vaccine but anti mandate and definately not an antivaxer.

We should be able to convince people to vaccinate rather than destroy their life if they don’t. Very uncomfortable with mandating what others do with their health.

Wow:

‘We’ve been advised that there are individuals claiming diplomatic immunity exemption from vaccination requirements and using fake ID cards as evidence.

The fake diplomatic ID cards are being sold by ‘Te-Moana-Nui-A-Kiwa Embassy’ and ‘Avoid Vaccines | Ranger Security’ organisations.

The individuals holding these ID cards do not hold diplomatic immunity in New Zealand and you should not accept these ID cards from people seeking exemption from the vaccine mandate.’

I think they all go hand in hand, right?

Without the huge spread of misinformation and scaremongering by the antivax groups we wouldn't have needed to mandate the vaccine in the first place.
We should've been able to roll the vaccine out safely and quickly initially without having all these freedoms and rights coalition idiots rambling on and being given mass airtime on social media to dissuade people from taking the vaccination.

Holy fuck, for the low price of $50 you too can be the owner of a fake diplomatic immunity card that is made by a group that doesn't have the ability to provide them! :rolleyes:

The god scam is where the big money is 🤣
For $50 I'll get you a get out of jail free card that I've made from cutting out a bit of cardboard from my son's box of fruit loops. All you'll need to do is stickytape a picture that of yourself that you print out from The Warehouse (or you can draw a rough picture of what you look like in the box provided).

Does the means justify the end?

I hear North Korea just shoots everyone with covid. That is much safer than allowing people to isolate and recover… does the means justify the end if you lose your humanity in the process?

It sits uncomfortably with me.

It only sits uncomfortably if you think the word humanity means you. One person. The individual.

You can flip that around and say the ones that fear covid should take responsibility and isolate themselves away from society. Unless they think humanity just means them 🤔

Deep man… I’m out and having a beer.
