The Mandate Update Project

COVID-19 vaccinations – which employers are mandating them?

The aim of this project is to provide information on the current mandates for COVID-19 vaccinations made by large employers and governments in Australia for their employees.

Information is provided in the searchable table below, and can also be downloaded as a colour-coded Excel spreadsheet. The Excel spreadsheet provides more detailed information, including links to employer websites where appropriate.

As far as we can ascertain, the information is correct at the date given for each employer.

If an employer would like to correct or add information, please email

Given the large number of organisations to contact, it may take some time before a full picture of the situation in Australia is obtained.

If you would like us to find out the situation for a particular (large) employer, or if you have information on an employer’s current policy on mandates, please email

The next major update of this information is scheduled for Sunday 18th December.
