In line with the Victorian Chief Health Officer’s Directions, contractors who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are unable to work at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) or on behalf of the RCH at another location, including in an RCH patient home.
Where a worker has not received their third dose but has proof of a COVID-19 vaccination booking by 29 March 2022, they may continue to work if they are wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) which includes a surgical mask and face shield.
For contractors working onsite PPE can be collected from the Main Street screening area.
If you have not yet had the third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine but have an appointment for third dose you will need to upload evidence of that appointment to
Please upload this information before visiting the RCH. If you work on the RCH site once you have provided all evidence and that evidence is approved, the Sine Pro app will recognise your vaccination status and will not ask you again.
All workers, contractors, and students entering the RCH site must continue to check-in using the Sine Pro app (choosing the appropriate sign in workflow) and complete the full attestation each time they attend the RCH. The Sine Pro app will recognise you at check in and ask you to
