(New) Vaccination  

COVID-19 vaccination is increasing becoming a requirement for some assignments. To assist NABS/NICSS, if you have had your COVID-19 vaccine, please send a copy of evidence to communications@nabs.org.au for noting.  Interpreters should always carry evidence with them.

Where a COVID-19 vaccination is required for an assignment (e.g. aged care, health facility), NABS will only send requests to those who have provided evidence. 

For more information, go to www.health.gov.au

Where can I find my immunisation history statement?   A person can obtain their immunisation history statement from the Australian Government  using myGov, the Medicare mobile app or by calling the Australian Immunisation Register and requesting a statement to be posted. Read more here: www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/individuals/services/medicare/australian-immunisation-register/how-get-immunisation-history-statement

Where an immunisation history statement is not available, the person may provide another form of written evidence. 

Note where there is Individual Health Identifier (IHI) shown on your statement, please ensure this is redacted before sending to communications@nabs.org.au 

 

Update for QLD interpreters 22/11/2021

Under the "Workers in a healthcare setting (COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements) Direction" published 10 November 2021 and any subsequent replacement Directions, after 15 December 2021, it is mandatory any Interpreter in QLD that enters, works in or provides services has received the prescribed number of doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, or meets the conditions for an exception under the Direction. Proof of the vaccination status will be required to present to the Employer. 

 

Mandatory for working with children

While it is not compulsory in all States and Territories to hold a Working with Children Check or equivalent, it is recommended that interpreters obtain one.

Please email communications@nabs.org.au to advise if you hold a current Working with Children Check. The relevant registration is required for assignments with persons under 18 years.
