If you experience any adverse side effects following the vaccination, we encourage all members to submit a Workplace Incident Report and to make a workers compensation claim. In addition, should you require immediate medical assistance and have out of pocket expenses, you may be able to access the AFP’s Early Intervention Program.
We have previously agitated with the AFP that any time of work following a vaccination should be covered under COVID-19 leave. We will continue to agitate for this.
If you do suffer an adverse reaction, please contact our Legal & Industrial team to discuss your options.
