Queensland police given deadline for mandatory vaccination
Queensland’s police force will be fully vaccinated against coronavirus by late January next year under a new mandate.
Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll announced this afternoon all officers and staff members will be required to have had their first dose by October 4 and their second by January 23, 2022.
“We have seen how quickly a COVID-19 outbreak can disrupt and devastate a community and we know a highly vaccinated population is the greatest protection we have against the virus,” she said in a statement.
“That is why the QPS is mandating vaccinations for the entire workforce in all QPS workplaces within the next five months to protect employees, their families and the community from COVID-19.”
