As vaccinations continue to roll out across Australia, more government mandates are falling into place and businesses are recognising the health and safety risks low percentages of staff vaccination could pose. Unfortunately, whether you’re a small business or have hundreds of employees, managing this information means extra paperwork – and extra headaches.

Instead of chasing after your staff for their vaccine evidence, you’ll want a system that calls for personal responsibility and allows easy tracking. When you have a proper, secure tracking system for staff vaccination, you can get an insight into vaccination progress amongst your employees.

With the right process for staff vaccination tracking, you can have peace of mind for your business, staff, and customers. 

Why Staff Vaccination Can Be Risky

Just asking staff for their medical information can present some difficult risks to navigate – which is why it is always important to follow the advice of Fair Work – but it becomes riskier when you need to store this information.

Vaccine certificates in particular are a challenge because they contain a protected piece of information called the Individual Healthcare Identifier. This number is like a person’s medical identity. It’s tied to all of their health information and could lead to fraud if it falls into the wrong hands. Failure to follow stringent procedures when handling and storing information could get your business into really hot water.

So, when evaluating your processes and tools for tracking vaccination information – it’s important to make sure you will be able to store and protect this information effectively, without creating mountains of additional work.
