27 October 2021: COVID-19 vaccination requirements for research, placement, fieldwork or volunteer activities

The WA Government recently announced that a range of occupations and workforces in WA will be subject to vaccination requirements. The policy follows the existing mandates in place for workers in high-risk industries.

If you will be working, doing research, or undertaking a placement, fieldwork or volunteer activity in one of these industries, you will likely be subject to these vaccination requirements. The State mandatory vaccine requirements take precedence over any Curtin policies and procedures.

The University has developed additional information for Curtin students who may be impacted by these new requirements. This includes information on when and how to provide your vaccination status record to Curtin.

The material will be updated regularly as the State’s requirements are changing rapidly, so please continue to check your student email and OASIS regularly for updates.

If you are unsure about compliance with the State mandate or are seeking clarification regarding an activity, please discuss this with your unit coordinator or the Student Wellbeing team.
