COVID-19 vaccination third dose now mandatory in WA

Yesterday (22 December 2021), WA Premier Mark McGowan made the announcement that Western Australian workers who come under an existing vaccine mandate will now be required to have a third dose within one month of eligibility, as part of the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.

The third dose will be mandatory for all eligible workers in industries covered by a vaccine mandate through various Public Health Act (2016) Directions.

All employees mandated to be vaccinated for work purposes under the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy must receive a third dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine within one month of becoming eligible.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) is set to make a decision on timeframes in coming days, currently it is five months between the second and third dose.

Information about industries covered by the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy is available here: http://www.wa.gov.au
