The first 70 of many-to-come border workers in New Zealand have been vaccinated to protect themselves against COVID-19.

Lynette Faiva was the first border worker to be vaccinated. She works at Jet Park as the facility support worker. Her role has the responsibility to provide support to families while they stay in managed isolation quarantine. She organises educational activities, game, and welfare support for families.

Operations Manager Drew Leafa was vaccinated, saying it was a privilege to be involved in an essential part of keeping New Zealand safe. He has worked at Jet Park since it became a managed isolation facility in early 2020; he is responsible for overseeing operations day-day.


Lorna Masoe, for the last 12 years, has worked at Jet Park. She got vaccinated to continue playing her role in scheduling all COVID-19 swab tests at the Hotel while working across a large variety of areas as part of the team.
