Medical Exemptions for COVID vaccination have limited conditions

Dear Patients

Medical Exemptions for COVID vaccination are limited and can only be granted for the following reasons:

1) Permanent Exemption 

  • Previous anaphylaxis to vaccine or vaccine component. Reaction to one class of vaccine does not preclude a different vaccine

2) Temporary Exemption 

  • Acute major medical condition eg undergoing major surgery or hospital admission for another serious condition
  • For mRNA COVID-19 vaccines: Inflammatory cardiac illness in the previous 6 months eg myocarditis, pericarditis, endocarditis, acute rheumatic fever or acute decompensated cardiac failure
  • For all COVID-19 vaccines: PCR confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection until complete recovery from the acute illness (which may be up to 6 months)
  • For all COVID-19 vaccines: Serious adverse event attributed to a previous dose of a COVID-19 vaccine without another cause identified. An event is considered serious if it requires hospitalisation  or results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity.
