Expiry of COVID-19 vaccination information

02 August 2023 | By Business Victoria

WorkSafe is reminding Victorian employers that pandemic regulations regarding the collection, recording, holding and use of COVID-19 vaccination information from specified persons have expired.

Friday 11 August Deadline

This means that employers that recorded or held COVID-19 vaccination information specifically under these regulations have until Friday 11 August 2023 to destroy that information.

This includes COVID-19 vaccination information collected from employees, independent contractors and their employees, volunteers and students on placement permitted to attend the workplace.

This requirement does not apply to employers that are permitted or required under other laws to collect, use, record, or hold vaccination information.
