Placement Immunisation Clinic
Queensland Health may restrict or deny access to Queensland Health facilities if a student does not meet the immunisation and infection control requirements.
From 1 July 2016, new mandatory vaccination requirements apply to the majority of front line clinical roles (including students) within Queensland Health.
A vaccine-preventable disease (VPD) is an infectious disease for which an effective vaccine exists. It is mandatory that students attending placement in a Queensland Health facility are immunised against Hepatitis B, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Pertussis (Whooping Cough), and Varicella (Chickenpox).
QUT Medical Centre offers Immunisation Placement Clinics every semester at Kelvin Grove campus.
