A local startup has come to the rescue of businesses big and small that need to keep track of their employees’ vaccination status by providing a simple and secure tool to monitor vaccination records.

The CheckVax solution  gives employers oversight of employees’ vaccination status initially and ongoing, as a vaccine booster requirements become part of the ongoing management of COVID-19.

The system works with both local and international vaccination certificates.

An easy way to keep track of vaccination status

CheckVax director Director Will Aldous said the tool s quick and easy to set up and can be functioning within a few days on a month-to-month arrangement, no long-term contracts.


“This is a new area of compliance that many Australian businesses are facing – either by choice or by government mandate – and it’s business-critical to get it right as we move along the roadmap to Australia re-opening,” said Aldous.

The tool offers detailed reporting, which can be segmented by work sites and business units, sends email reminders to employees and alerts the business to a change in vaccination status if, for example, an employee does not provide evidence of a booster within the specified time.

The individual’s privacy and data security are high priorities and automated daily data extracts can also be provided to other HRIS, Payroll and Rostering systems, as required.

Melbourne startup behind new software

CheckVax was designed and built by Melbourne-based CheckWorkRights, which already operates a market leading visa checking system for some of the largest employees of transient labour in Australia.Aldous. says the  CheckVax tool was a natural addition to their existing offering.


“This is a new area of compliance that many Australian businesses are facing – either by choice or by government mandate – and it’s business critical to get it right as we move along the roadmap to Australia re-opening,” said Will.

“For those industries using transient labour, like agriculture and retail, once Visa Holiday Workers are allowed to return, we will also have a flood of workers arrive on Australia’s doorstep whose vaccine status will need to be managed and monitored effectively.

“We are able to get businesses up and running with vaccine status checking very quickly and we’ve kept it very affordable and don’t pin businesses into a contract because we understand there is so much uncertainty in today’s business environment.”
