Collecting and reporting data on the COVID-19 vaccination status of aged care workforce

Published

The Australian Government today announced the introduction of new reporting arrangements for approved providers of residential aged care services, and in-home and community aged care services, for this purpose.

An online reporting tool is now available for providers to use on a voluntary basis via My Aged Care.

Approved providers are strongly encouraged to start voluntary reporting now, on a weekly basis, on the:

  • total number of workers at each aged care service
  • total number of workers at each service who have received a single dose of a COVID-19 vaccine
  • total number of workers at each service who have received all required doses of a
    COVID-19 vaccine.

Reporting is initially voluntary, noting weekly reporting will be a formal requirement for:

  • for approved providers of residential aged care services starting on 15 June 2021
  • for approved providers of in home and community aged care services in the coming weeks.

It is important to note that receiving a COVID-19 vaccination, and disclosing this information, is voluntary for workers.
