On 15 November 2021 all healthcare workers in New Zealand — doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, midwives and the like — were required to have had their first covid Jab. The covid Jab mandate lasted until late September 2022.
Just tonight I learned that over 11,000 workers received “12A Exemptions” during this period from an Official Information Act request to Te Whatu Ora (Health New Zealand), the health service agency that absorbed the District Health Boards and manages all public health services nationwide.

I am highlighting an excerpt from the response, as follows:
From 13 November 2021 to 26 September 2022, a total of 478 applications for Significant Service Disruption exemption (SSD) were received. 103 applications were granted, covering approximately 11,005 workers.
The Significant Service Disruption criteria are outlined here:
I personally know of two psychiatrists who refused to be inoculated at all, and another who, after having received two jabs, refused any further. All were terminated from their employment, in a country with a catastrophically severe shortage of competent psychiatrists no less.
I know of another healthcare worker who developed a severe adverse reaction to the first inoculation and consulted a cardiologist who recommended and applied for a medical exemption. The request for an exemption was declined by then-Director General of Health, Ashley Bloomfield. I know personally others too — midwives, nurses, pharmacists — who lost their jobs because they believed the jabs were either unnecessary or dangerous or both.
With this new information, I now wonder how many of the ‘chosen’ 11,000 were doctors, and if so, why these doctors didn’t raise their voices against the program of coercive inoculation? Had a fraction of them done so, the entire lawlessly intrusive governmental program would have been stopped in its tracks.
I wonder who decided that these 11,000 workers could get off jab-free while my friends and many others suffered the consequences of their conscientious choice? Why were some people deemed ‘essential’ and others not?
Now one can see very clearly and without the shred of a doubt the deeply ingrained hypocrisy of New Zealand’s governing institutions.
And we can see furthermore the sick and depraved immorality that is an integral part of all totalitarian systems, wherein some are ‘chosen’ and some are not.
So much more to learn, so much information to gather, so much gaslighting to expose.
Spread the word. We will hold these criminals to account.

Please note that it is not possible to provide the exact number of workers that were covered by
SSDs. This is because it was possible for an organisation to submit an application to cover more
than one worker.
