Update: Mandatory Third Vaccination

22 December 2021

An update from Premier Mark McGowan:

The spread of Omicron throughout the world and on the east coast is extremely concerning.

Based on the latest health advice, Western Australian workers currently covered under our workforce vaccination policy will now be required to have a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Under the mandatory vaccination policy, group one workers are required to have received two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by 31 December 2021 and group two workers are required to receive two doses by 31 January 2021.

Workers covered by this policy will now also be required to have a third dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine within one month of becoming eligible.

The latest research shows that a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine has the potential to raise your protection against Omicron to more than 86% against symptomatic disease and more than 98% against severe infection.

That’s why everyone is strongly urged to receive their third dose, when eligible, even if not covered by this policy.

Vaccination is our best defence against this variant of concern as we prepare to ease border controls on February 5.
