Vaccination to be mandatory for ACT health workers


The Government will work with stakeholders to get the ACT’s health workers vaccinated.

All frontline health workers have both jabs by December under the proposal.

Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith says consultation is now underway.

“We’re working with the healthcare workforce and other key stakeholders to finalise the detail of the Public Health Order,” said Minister Stephen-Smith.

“A lot of work has already taken place over the past several months to ensure our vaccination coverage in high risk settings, like our hospitals, is high.”
