TAFE: Have your say on mandatory vaccinations

Posted by Alex Scott on December 6, 2021

Last week, your union representatives met with TAFE Queensland management to discuss the impacts of the announcement of a Chief Health Officer (CHO) mandate for COVID-19 vaccination in schools, early childhood settings, correctional centres, youth detention centres and airports.

The Chief Health Officer has issued a new Health Direction which requires employees who work in schools to have had two vaccines by 23 January 2022.

This is a new requirement and unfortunately there is not a lot of detail provided yet by the Department as to how this will be managed and implemented.

The Director General sent out a message to all staff this morning about this.

Union staff have been invited to attend stakeholder briefings this afternoon about what this means and what will happen next – questions like: where should vaccination records be stored, how, how would you ask for an exemption, etc.
