COVID-19 Update for students 22 July: change of vaccination requirements

With high levels of COVID-19 vaccination rates in our community, and the continued health and safety measures in place at Chisholm, we have updated our vaccination policy in line with information provided by the Victorian State Government.

From Monday 25 July, students will no longer be required to show evidence of vaccination or hold a valid medical exemption to attend a Chisholm campus.

Chisholm is still extremely committed to supporting the health and safety of our students, staff and community, and we have a range of controls in place to manage this.

Vaccinations and Placements

Students attending a placement will need to comply with the vaccination requirements of their host, which may include the wearing of a mask and/or showing evidence of COVID-19 vaccinations.

The Victorian State Government has indicated six industry areas requiring mandatory three dose vaccination, which are:

  • Residential Aged Care Facility workers
  • Healthcare workers
  • Disability workers
  • Custodial workers
  • Emergency services workers, and
  • Education workers at Specialist Schools

In addition, individual employers may impose their own vaccination requirements. Therefore, if you are not vaccinated, you may not be able to complete your course if you are unable to undertake placement.

Vaccination is still considered the best way to protect yourself, family, friends and teachers from major illness associated with the virus. Getting vaccinated will help slow the spread of COVID-19 and prevent extensive outbreaks across our community.
