Workplace COVID-19 Vaccinations

Medimobile has been approved by the Department of Health under the National Vaccine Administration Partners Program (VAPP) to offer COVID-19 vaccinations in workplaces. We anticipate offering this service if the official recommendations are in favour of ongoing boosters (e.g. annually or biannually).

Vaccination Program

Given each employee will have had their first and second doses on different dates between March 2021 to the present, the optimal timing of each employees’ third dose (“booster”) of COVID-19 vaccination is very varied. This presents a challenge to scheduling a COVID-19 workplace vaccination clinic, because many employees will be overdue for their vaccination by the date of the clinic, or it will be too early for their third dose.

We recommend that employees have their third dose (“booster”) COVID-19 vaccination at their GP, a vaccination hub, or a pharmacy when it falls due. Thereafter, if ongoing Covid-19 boosters are recommended, workplace clinics could be scheduled to offer maximal, timely protection and convenience to the majority of employees e.g. workplaces run an annual COVID-19 booster clinic every June or July, or twice yearly, taking into account the ongoing need to schedule annual flu vaccinations between March and May annually.

About COVID-19 Boosters

Booster or “third dose” COVID-19 vaccinations are recommended from 3 months after a person had their second dose.

The purpose of the third dose is to mitigate against waning immunity to the SARS-COV-2 Coronavirus and the emergence of new variants. Evidence on the benefits and risks of booster doses is still limited but supports the benefit and safety of booster vaccination, particularly in high-risk groups.

To facilitate implementation of the national COVID-19 vaccine booster program, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) supports the use of a single booster dose for those who completed their primary COVID-19 vaccine course ≥3 months ago.

Given each individual had their first and second doses on different dates between March 2021 to the present, the optimal timing of each employees’ third dose is very varied. This presents a challenge to scheduling a workplace vaccination clinic, because many employees will be overdue for their vaccination by the date of the clinic, or it will be too early for their third dose.

Medimobile therefore presently recommends that employers encourage their employees to seek their third dose from a GP clinic, vaccination hub or pharmacy on or soon after the date it falls due.

We will continue to monitor the developments of the evidence informing timing of booster doses, and the suitability of booster clinics for the workplace setting.
