New Public Health Orders - Authorised workers must be vaccinated
All Authorised workers – in Melbourne and regional Victoria – will require their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by Friday, 15
October in order to continue working onsite under public health orders announced today. AO's will need to be fully
vaccinated by 26 November. The 15 October deadline will not apply to workers who already have
existing requirements under CHO directions – groups like construction,
freight, healthcare, aged care and education will still have to comply
with previous advice. Fortunately take up vax rates amongst our AO's are well above the general communities with 82 per cent already receiving their 1st dose and 66 per cent double dosed as at today.
