The State Government has made a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for most WA workers. 

But with deadlines for the third jab varying between different workers, understanding key dates is critical for businesses.

Who needs a booster vaccine? 

On December 22, 2021, the State Government announced that any worker who falls within the current vaccine mandates must also receive a booster vaccination within one calendar month of becoming eligible. 

Under current Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) advice, people become eligible for a booster shot four months after the second dose of their COVID-19 vaccine. 

The health directions state that from February 5, 2022 (WA’s reopening date) a person who has been directed to be vaccinated must not enter or remain at a site if they haven't complied with the booster vaccination requirements.
