Chief Minister Michael Gunner has made it mandatory for all frontline workers to be vaccinated in the Northern Territory.

Workers have until November 13 to get vaccinated, or they will not be able to continue working. They will also risk a fine.

“You must receive the vaccine if in the course of your work you come into contact with vulnerable people, your workplace has a high risk of infection, or you perform maintenance of essential infrastructure or logistics in the territory,” Mr Gunner said.

“Workplaces, where workers must have the vaccine, is not an exhaustive list.

“If you are not sure if it applies to you, ask yourself these three questions. In my work, do I come into contact with vulnerable people? Is my workplace a higher risk of infection?

“Do I work on infrastructure or logistics that are critical to the territory? If your answer is maybe or I don’t know then you need to get the jab.

“Critically, the direction also applies to industries who directly face customers and circumstances where the worker may not know the vulnerability of the person they are interacting with.”
