All Queensland Health staff that work in, or visit a facility where care is provided must have received their first dose of the COVID vaccine by Friday October 1.

In a communication this week to all staff, the Director General, Dr John Wakefield, reminded employees of their obligation to be vaccinated or to seek an appropriate exemption.

Staff who are not compliant will be prevented from working and will be forced to access entitlements including long service leave, annual leave or take leave without pay.

Staff can apply for a medical exemption and will be permitted to work with heightened safety precautions until their application for exemption is processed.
