Victorian update on third dose boosters
Update: The Victorian Government announced the 12 February 2022 deadline for workers in key sectors to have received their COVID-19 third dose vaccination will be extended by four weeks. By 12 March 2022, eligible healthcare workers will need to provide evidence of their COVID-19 third dose vaccination. Any of those workers who have not received a third dose by 12 February 2022, must provide evidence of a booking to receive their COVID-19 third dose before 12 March 2022, otherwise they cannot work.
Workers in key sectors who are already required to be fully vaccinated must get their third dose before being permitted to work onsite. This applies to workers in healthcare, aged care, disability services, emergency services, correctional facilities, quarantine accommodation and food distribution.
Workers eligible for a third dose on or before Wednesday 12 January will have until Saturday 12 February to get their third dose. For more information click here.
