Feedback Report: Laverty (Healius) Mandatory Vaccination Policy

Thank you for your prompt feedback on Healius’ mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policy. During the brief consultation process, we represented your concerns. While the policy in our view is not perfect, the HSU did negotiate:

  • Increased time for workers (in most circumstances) to fully vaccinate before any mandate is enforced
  • Increased capacity to schedule appointments around work responsibilities
  • Greater allowances around how side effects to the vaccine are dealt with
  • An education process which will improve workers’ access to information, enabling them to make an informed decision about COVID-19 vaccines.

Below you can find correspondence we received from Healius earlier today formalising the above changes to their policy – won by your union for you.

Do you have colleagues who aren’t union members yet? They can have their say too by joining us! They can join the HSU online at or call 1300 478 679 to join over the phone.
