Queensland Health Vaccinations
Since July 2016, Queensland Health has had a policy which requires people engaged in certain roles to
provide documentary evidence of vaccination for the
mumps, rubella, varicella
Employees, contractors, agency staff, students and volunteers who will be engaged in roles where
there is contact that would allow the acquisition or transmission of a VPD via respiratory means.
- Prior to engagement, contractors need to provide:
- documentary evidence of vaccination for the diseases measles, mumps, rubella, varicella and
documentaryevidence they are not susceptible to these diseases.
It will also be a condition of ongoing engagement to supply documentary evidence of follow up
vaccinations and boosters for the specified VPDs.
As a Queensland based company, we are very familiar with the
- Conduct a search on the Australian Immunisation Register to determine the employee’s vaccination history;
- Contact the employee to provide them with a pathology request form and advise them to attend a specimen collection
centreto have their pre-vaccination hepatitis B serology completed.
- Once the pathology results have been provided by our pathology partner, we would once again contact the employee to advise them that they either:
- Do not need to get vaccinated as we already have records; or
- Attend our office, bringing any vaccination records they may have, to assess their vaccination status and begin their course of any necessary vaccinations.
- Once they commence their course of vaccines, they will be sent reminder emails to return for subsequent doses as well as their post-vaccination serology.
Each employee will be provided with a vaccination statement that meets Queensland Health’s requirements plus all vaccination records and pathology results will be stored in our clinical software and vaccination records uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register.
