Taupo District Council is going against expert advice and scrapping vaccine passes.

From this morning, people will no longer need proof of vaccination to get into council offices, public pools, museums or public toilets.

Public health expert Michael Baker says it's far too early to scrap vaccine passes.

But Taupo Mayor David Trewavas told Mike Hosking he hopes other councils will follow their lead.

“Now we know what we’re dealing with, we know how we can handle it, and still under the Red Light system which is a bit of a pain. It’s time to get back to normal and get on with the job.”
