Answer

Why is the University requiring vaccination?

State Government modelling and experience interstate and internationally illustrates that even with a high vaccination rate of 90% of persons aged 16 or older, COVID-19 will still be transmitted in the community and there is still the potential for individuals to become seriously ill or die from COVID-19. 
The University has a duty to, as far as reasonably practicable, provide and maintain a working environment in which employee are not exposed to hazards and to provide a safe environment for students, contractors and visitors to our campuses.
Vaccinations are considered to reduce transmission of COVID-19, and importantly, reduce the likelihood of severe illness and death. We consider that mandating vaccinations is the control which will be most effective in minimising the risks from COVID-19 to Curtin’s community.
