Authorised workers in Victoria have been given a reprieve after the Andrews government backflipped on plans to enforce a COVID vaccination mandate.

All Commonwealth employees as well as people who work in connection with court proceedings will be exempt with a government spokesperson saying the relaxation is an attempt to avoid “jurisdictional limitations”.

The change will apply to judges, lawyers, security guards and police officers.

Currently, 1.2 million authorised workers in Victoria are required to have their first dose of the vaccine by October 15.
