Update to students' vaccination requirements*

From 26 November 2021 onwards

  • All students attending campus must be fully vaccinated.

VETDSS and VCAL Students

  • There is no mandate for VETDSS and VCAL students to be fully vaccinated to attend a GOTAFE campus.
  • Therefore, all VETDSS and VCAL students are required to wear a mask while in class or on campus.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please chat to your trainer.

*The vaccination requirements do not apply to students who are attending campus to complete secondary school subjects or those that have a medical exemption. Also exempt from vaccination requirements are students who are enrolled in a course that is explicitly 100% online and does not require participants to attend campus for any purpose.

WATCH: Vaccination information session

It can be hard to determine fact from fiction when it comes to information around COVID-19 vaccines. We chatted to Dr Karthi, a Senior Emergency Department Physician from Goulburn Valley Health, who set the record straight and answered some of our students' questions and concerns.

As always, we recommend you have a conversation with your doctor, pharmacist or other health professional to get medical advice for your individual circumstances.

COVID-19 fact sheets translated

The Department of Home Affairs has created a dedicated page focussed on providing information across a range of topics around COVID-19 in over 60 languages.

Topics covered include:

  • Health - including information about COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Education - extra support to students, parents and education providers.
  • Business and Financial Support- information about Budget 2021/22, financial support and work health and safety.
  • Community Safety and Services - guidance for communities, including around misinformation and truths about COVID-19.
  • Visas and the Border-Australia's immigration and border arrangements during COVID-19.
