Summary of Changes from Previous Version

The policy has been amended in response to

requests from the School of Health

and Human Sciences, to remove the requirement for

staff to provide HR Services

with a serological report. At the present time,

the University does not have

the skills/knowledge to interpret this serological

information. Employees

will be required to the provide alternative

evidence or adequate immunisation

as set out in clause 16 and encouraged to discuss

their level of immunity

following vaccination, with their treating doctor

as set out in clause 17.

In addition, there have been a couple of minor

editorial amendments made, and

a clause has been added to Section 1 - Purpose and

Scope, as follows:

(3) This policy should be read in conjunction with

the Vaccination Procedures.
