Reauthorising of vaccinators whose vaccinators certificate has expired for more than six months

The process within Toi Te Ora Public Health for reauthorising a certified vaccinator whose vaccinator’s certificate has expired for more than six months

This will need to be assessed on a case by case basis, view page 634-635 of the Immunisation Handbook 2017 for more details.

To enable this process the nurse will complete the application form vaccinator expired and send the following evidence:

  • current annual practicing certificate

  • indemnity insurance – this must be a currently dated letter from your provider confirming your membership/insurance i.e. NZNO.

  • certificate of successful completion of Vaccinator Training Course (within the last 5 years, provided by IMAC) OR your current vaccinator certificate

  • attendance certificate from your most recent Vaccinator Update couse (must be within the last 2 years)

  • copy of the expired Vaccinator Authorisation Certificate

  • full clinical assessment by an immunisation coordinator

  • current CPR certificate - Level 4 - airway and oxygen management

  • summary of immunisation practice over last 12 months

There are three options for sending through this information:


Toi Te Ora Public Health
Administration Support Officer
PO Box 2120

Fax: 07 578 0883

The Medical Officer of Health will review the evidence. If all evidence is present and correct a certificate for two years practice will be issued.
If any evidence is missing you will be advised and asked to provide this.

NB: Your certificate can not be issued until all the correct information has been received.
