All volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
All volunteers who are placed in a patient-contact role will be required to undertake a blood screen followed by any required immunisations, or provide evidence of existing immunisations. The immunisations required before starting as a volunteer are: mumps, tetanus, rubella, measles, hepatitis B, varicella (Chicken Pox) and pertussis (Whooping Cough). The costs of this process will be covered by Mater.
Some roles may require a Blue Card (work with children) or a national Criminal History Check. Driving roles require a Driver Declaration form. Mater will facilitate the application process and cover the costs if required.
