Change to Definition of 'FULLY VACCINATED'

This morning, the Victorian Government updated its advice on their definition of “fully vaccinated” - which has consequences for the reopening of construction sites tomorrow and going forward.

Yesterday, the Victorian Government’s definition of “fully vaccinated” meant either having both vaccinations, or one vaccination and a booking by Saturday 13 November.

However, as of this morning, the government’s definition of “fully vaccinated” now means having had both vaccinations.

NECA understands this will add a significant challenge to managing on a practical level. These concerns are being voiced to the Victorian Government.
