The webinars cover topics such as:

  • how the COVID-19 vaccination mandate in a worker’s state or territory applies to them
  • how workers can access priority vaccinations
  • how workers will be supported to be vaccinated by their workplace
  • grant opportunities available for employers to support their workers to get vaccinated
  • some of reasons workers might feel hesitant about getting vaccinated and how they can be reassured.

Each webinar includes around 30 minutes of Q&A discussion covering questions submitted by workers.
