Workers on the Authorised Worker list required to vaccinate
The state government has announced that all Victorians on the authorised workers list will be required to get vaccinated to continue working on-site, including those in Gippsland.
Premier Daniel Andrews said the first dose is needed by 15 October and authorised workers must be fully vaccinated by 26 November.
"With supply of the vaccine finally becoming widely available, we are able to protect all workers who aren’t able to do their essential work from home and protect the roadmap to reopening," the Premier said.
Mr Andrews said that delivering the National Roadmap will put more pressure on Victoria's health system than ever before.
"It is still crucial we continue to protect our health system from being overwhelmed," he said.
"Our nurses, doctors, ambos and all of our health workers are working their guts out to be there for us and they need us all to do our bit.
