NHAA Position Statement COVID-19 vaccination

The Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia supports and endorses the evidence-based advice of various expert bodies overseeing the national COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign in Australia.  

We understand the importance of preventing severe disease and mortality in vulnerable populations such as the frail elderly, people living with a disability, First Nations communities and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities. Many health professionals are also on the frontline and at risk of contracting the virus themselves.  

As health care professionals the NHAA supports COVID-19 vaccination for all healthcare practitioners and believes all health practitioners should be vaccinated for their own protection, and for the protection of others.  

State and territory governments have implemented COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Refer to your state or territory for information on vaccine requirements and public health orders. Please refer to the Australian Government Department of Health for up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination information.
