Vaccine requirement

Find out more about the requirement to be vaccinated for MCCC events, how this will be implemented and how your information will be stored.

What do I need to know about vaccination requirements?

1. Vaccination status

Everyone attending an MCCC face-to-face event or activity has to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

You must provide proof of vaccination unless a medical exemption applies.

The Victorian Government has recently mandated that persons attending healthcare facilities (including registrars, facilitators, actors and volunteers) are required to provide evidence of their COVID-19 vaccination status.  It will be unlawful for them to enter a healthcare facility unless a specific medical exemption applies.  MCCC fits within this order due to the nature of activities we perform.

In accordance with the public health order, MCCC is required to collect, record and hold vaccination information, including:

  • Vaccination status (partially vaccinated, fully vaccinated or unvaccinated)
  • If partially vaccinated or unvaccinated, whether you are booked to receive a first or second dose by the given deadlines
  • If fully vaccinated, evidence of both vaccinations.

MCCC will be complying with all public health orders in place and will be requesting people to provide this information (as outlined above) prior to their attendance at the next MCCC face-to-face (out-of-practice) education event or activity.

2. How will this work?

To attend an MCCC face-to-face event or activity you need to be fully vaccinated.

You need to show evidence of both doses of your COVID-19 vaccination.

This must be shown to an MCCC representative on arrival or prior to the event.

If you are not fully vaccinated, MCCC will discuss options with you.

An MCCC representative will ask to sight evidence on your arrival at a face-to-face event or activity, to confirm your vaccination status. MCCC will be requesting to sight evidence of both doses of the vaccination. An easy way to present this is by downloading the certificate from the Medicare App, storing it under ‘Offline Items’ for easy access when required. For instructions on how to do this, please click here.

If you are unvaccinated, or partially vaccinated at the time of the face-to-face event or activity, in the interests of health and safety, MCCC will notify you to NOT attend face-to-face and discuss alternatives with you.

3. How is my information stored?

Your vaccination information will be recorded and held confidentially for the duration of your training with MCCC.

COVID-19 certificates will not be stored, only sighted, so please do not email them.

If you have a Victorian Government medical contraindication form, or have any other concerns, an MCCC representative will contact you for a confidential discussion.

Confirmation of sighting of this information will be recorded by MCCC and held confidentially for the duration of your training with MCCC.  MCCC will be sighting this information only and will not be storing COVID-19 certificates on our records.  Please do not send any certificates to MCCC electronically.

If you have evidence of a medical contraindication (in the form approved by the Victorian Government), or have any questions or concerns, you will be provided with a MCCC contact to liaise with prior to the face-to-face event or activity.  A confidential discussion will occur to ensure we properly take those matters into consideration.
