COVID-19 Vaccinations

Attendance at Leavers events are voluntary based on the conditions of entry.

The key focus of government agencies involved with the Leavers event is to minimise harm and ensure a safe event for school leavers and the local community of the south west.

The Leavers event poses unique challenges both from the number of attendees and the mixing of non-household groups particularly in areas of little social distancing.

As the Vaccine Commander, Commissioner Chris Dawson announced on October 5 2021, that all Leavers attending the official Leavers events in the South West would have to be vaccinated, this year an additional condition of entry relates to this requirement.

To attend official Leavers 2021 events, Leavers will be required to have at least one COVID-19 vaccination to enable purchase of an official Leavers wristband.

We are still working through the details of how Leavers will evidence their vaccination details with us.  To assist that process we encourage Leavers to obtain their proof of vaccination and to pre-register through the Leavers WA mobile app.  Release date of the app will be announced in the coming week.

Any queries relating to the vaccination please utilise the following link for further information:  COVID.Immunisation@health.wa.gov.au

Events occurring outside of the Strategy and in other locations; such as boat parties and pre/post Leavers week events, are not supported by the WA Police Force, the Department of Health, or partner organisations.
