Business FAQs

If you can’t get any of the approved COVID-19 vaccines for medical reasons, this can be recorded on your Immunisation History Statement and COVID-19 Digital Certificate.

This is called a medical contraindication. This means you can’t have any of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Your doctor will need to update your record on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) to say you have a medical contraindication.

You can then show your COVID-19 Digital Certificate as proof of your vaccination exemption status, which can also be added to your Check in TAS app.

If the employer or organisation intends to collect vaccination status into a record of employees and members, they must be satisfied that this collection is permitted under Australian Privacy Principle (APP) 3.  For more information, visit the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

If a business or organisation chooses to mandate vaccination, and there is a requirement of the business or organisation for people to provide evidence of their medical exemption, people can ask their doctor to update their record on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) to say that they have a medical contraindication. They can then use their statement or certificate as proof of their vaccination exemption if required. More information is available from Services Australia.

There is currently no Public Health direction that requires sport and recreation teams or players to provide proof of vaccination or a medical exemption if they wish to participate in their sport. If a sporting organisation want players and visitors/supporters to be vaccinated as a condition of participating in sport, they should seek advice before they take any action as there may be privacy and discrimination issues that apply.
