After consultation with athletes, volunteers, health departments, and national sporting organisations, and review by the national board, a COVID vaccination policy for Special Olympics Australia has been formalised.
We strongly recommend that everyone training, competing, attending, volunteering, or working at Special Olympics Australia remain up to date with their COVID vaccination status.
We also strongly recommend that everyone protect themselves against influenza by speaking to their immunisation provider about getting vaccinated.
This policy has been made to safeguard the health and safety of the Special Olympics community, including athletes, families, carers, and supporters. We will continue to work with everyone to implement safe training and competition activities.
This policy will be reviewed every two months, or as required, to ensure it is informed by the latest public health orders.

If you have any questions regarding this policy or its implementation, please contact Pierre Comis or Gareth Hogan on 1300 225 762.
