Vaccinations as a condition of employment

Some roles within Queensland Health are designated as:

  • ‘Vaccination Preventable Disease (VPD) risk roles’ in which the incumbent may be exposed to the risk of acquisition and/or transmission of a VPD
  • requiring the incumbent to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

If you are applying for a role that has been designated as requiring a mandatory vaccination you must be able to provide evidence that you either:

  • have been vaccinated against the VPD's listed in the role description; or you are not susceptible to the VPD's listed in the role description
  • are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

You will be asked by the recruiting manager to supply this evidence if you are the preferred candidate for the role.

Any job offer would be subject to the supply of evidence related to the mandatory vaccination requirements in addition to other required employment screening.
