ACT COVID-19 update: Boosters mandated for ACT disability support workers
This amendment applies to all disability care, residential aged care, and in-home and community aged-care workers. It requires staff to receive their booster vaccination 3 months (and no more than six months) after completion of their primary vaccination course.
Organisations are asked to encourage employees to access a booster vaccine as soon as they become eligible. The infographic Have You Had a Covid-19 Vaccination Booster provides information on the benefits of having a Covid-19 booster shot.
Staff that do not comply with this Direction will be prevented from working until they receive their booster vaccine or are issued a temporary exemption.
More information about temporary exemptions is available at the ACT Health website: Information for employees that require vaccination
