Are you a COVID vaccine injured New Zealander?

Would you like to share your story in our video?

For the past 18 months, The Health Forum NZ has been documenting adverse events reported by everyday New Zealanders and supporting the vaccine injured community.

Now, with the help of a professional graphic artist, we are creating a short video montage to help New Zealanders learn about the type of serious ongoing life changing vaccine injuries that many are now living with in our country.

If you have decided it is time to share your truth, please find the courage to be one of the stories in our video.

This will involve you filming a video selfie approximately 20 seconds long on your cell phone, and uploading it to our website, together with a high quality photo of yourself. See below for full instructions.

Not ready to share your “selfie” yet?

If you’d like to tell us about how the Covid 19 regulations have affected you – suffered an adverse event, mandated out from work, or declined an exemption – but don’t feel able to create a Selfie Video at this time, please click the link below to our confidential form where you can share details of your own story:
