Aged Care Roving Vaccination Clinics Update

The Department of Health has released its list of ‘in reach’ clinics up to 7 August. You can see this list at this link.

Very disappointingly, the Department has confirmed that aged care workers can only access these ‘in reach’ clinics in their own workplace. I know that many of you would like to attend clinics in nearby facilities but at this stage that isn’t possible. Also disappointingly, we have been unable details for beyond 7 August. We will continue to push the Department on both of these issues.

In the meantime, if you or your colleagues are experiencing difficulties with accessing appointments, please call the COVID hotline on 1800 020 080 and dial 4 to speak to a support person who can assist. You can also email agedcare@hsu.asn.au so we can escalate to the Department of Health.
