Could all universities introduce compulsory vaccines? 

Auckland University has announced all students, staff and visitors will have to be Covid-19 vaccinated by early January to be on campus.  

Wellington's Victoria University has already made it clear vaccination will be mandatory for halls of residence.  

Universities New Zealand chief executive Chris Whelan told Mike Hosking it's a decision all universities are grappling with.  

He says they're keen to make sure that heading into 2022, they can offer all students something close to a normal learning experience, which is heading towards a vaccine mandate.
