Victorian vaccine rule to be tweaked for 12 to 15-year-olds

FIRST with NEIL MITCHELL

The state government looks set to tweaked the vaccination rules for 12 to 15-year-olds to permit unvaccinated students to participate in school activities.

The Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools has sent a letter to principals informing them that the state government will amend the Open Premises Directions later today to allow 12 to 15-year-olds who aren’t vaccinated to attend school events held at open premises which are used by other schools or patrons.

The change means students aged between 12 and 15 will not need to be fully vaccinated to attend off-site school activities such as camps, excursions and graduations.

The exception only applies to school-organised activities where a teacher is present.

3AW Mornings has contacted the state government for official confirmation and is awaiting a response.
