Contractors and suppliers
All suppliers, contractors and their employees, agents, and subcontractors visiting a St John of God Health Care facility must be fully vaccinated.
Any supplier or contractor who has not provided St John of God Health Care with their proof of vaccination or appointment via the online form will be considered unvaccinated and will not be able to enter our facilities.
Providing proof of vaccination
To provide proof of vaccinations for yourself or your employees, please follow the below steps:
- Go to www.sjog.org.au/vaccinedeclaration
- Fill in your details and attach a proof of vaccination document. See below for accepted forms of evidence.
- Employees/agents/subcontractors will receive an email confirming whether their declaration has been accepted or not.
- When visiting a St John of God Health Care facility, suppliers/contractors will need to have a copy of their proof of vaccination and/or email confirmation ready in the event they are asked for it.
- Additionally, there may be other check-in requirements at individual facilities.
Visiting suppliers/contractors who have not already pre-registered through the above link can scan the QR code to be taken to the website and submit their proof of vaccination on the spot.
Accepted forms of proof of vaccination
Accepted forms of proof of vaccination are:
- Immunisation history statement from Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) available from the Medicare section of your MyGov account, or the Express Plus Medicare App (can be accessed if you have had just your first dose, or both first and second).
- COVID-19 Digital Certificate available on the Medicare section of your MyGov account, or the Express Plus Medicare App (applicable only if you have already received both your first and second dose)
Dates of vaccination requirements
Following the recent public health order released by the State Governments and in addition to our double vaccination requirements, we have updated COVID-19 booster vaccination requirements for suppliers and contractors who visit St John of God Health Care facilities.
All suppliers/contractors and their employees, agents, and subcontractors visiting a St John of God Health Care facility must receive their COVID-19 booster by the dates outlined below.
- For workers who received their second dose on or before 12 September 2021, you must receive your booster by 12 February 2022.
- For workers who received their second dose after 12 September 2021, you must receive your booster by 29 March 2022.
For more information regarding the VIC Order refer here
- For workers who were eligible to receive a booster on or before 3 January 2022 (a period of five months from the date of their second dose), you must receive your booster by 5 February 2022.
- For workers who were eligible to receive a booster between 4 January and 30 January (a period of four months from the date of their second dose), you must receive your booster one month from the date you became eligible.
- For workers who were eligible to receive a booster on or after 31 January (a period of three months from the date of their second dose), you must receive your booster one month from the date you became eligible.
You can check what date you are eligible for your booster (i.e. third dose) at www.rollup.wa.gov.au
For more information regarding the WA Order and full definitions refer here.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 then you can have the vaccine any time after the virus has resolved but waiting a month after you are fully recovered is the recommended timing for a third dose.
What to do if you become aware of cases within your organisation

What to do if you are not able to provide proof of vaccination
If for any reason a supplier or contractor is not able to continue to provide services to St John of God Health Care under these conditions, and or meet the vaccination requirement dates, please email [email protected] using the subject heading: ‘Unable to provide services’.
