All Canberra athletes will need to be vaccinated to compete in Victoria - unless they get a medical exemption. The Victorian government's mandatory vaccination policy comes into effect on Friday, with all professional athletes required to have their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine by then to be able to train or play in the state, with November 26 the deadline to be double dosed. At this stage there's no end date on that health order, meaning it could affect all of Canberra's teams - the Raiders, ACT Brumbies, Canberra United, the Cavalry, the Capitals and the ACT Meteors. While Canberrans have a record high vaccination rate, there could be some athletes who don't get vaccinated. But they'll be unable to compete or train in Victoria - until Victorian chief health officer Brett Sutton rescinds the health order.
