Vaccination requirement for authorised workers

The Victorian Government has announced mandatory vaccination requirements for all authorised providers and authorised workers who are not working from home.

All workers – in Melbourne and regional Victoria – on the authorised worker list, this includes horticulture workers, who cannot work at home will require their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by Friday 15 October.

From 26 November 2021, the requirement will increase to having had two doses or a medical exception.

Essentially, anyone working under an authorised worker permit today will be required to adhere to these mandatory vaccination requirements. 

We understand that further information surrounding employer/employee obligations and management of mandatory vaccinations will be made available later this week, we will update you in due course. In the interim if you have any questions relating to vaccinations for authorised workers please email NGIV and we will seek further clarification.
