As a unique CSIRO worksite, RV Investigator has a mandatory COVID vaccination requirement for all individuals participating in voyages to have had all primary doses for their age group.
The requirement is based on the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation’s (ATAGI) recommendations and additional booster doses may be required depending on age and health status - please refer: ATAGI recommended COVID-19 vaccine doses (health.gov.au)
NOTE: Where vaccination is not possible, an individual must hold a valid medical exemption issued by an authorised medical practitioner. In this case, additional measures may be applied to support safe participation in the voyage.
