COVID-19 vaccine update for residential aged care workers

Phase 1a eligibility includes all people working at residential aged care facilities who are responsible for residential care, support and services for residents, maintenance and administration. It is a priority to deliver choice and flexibility in accessing COVID-19 vaccinations for aged care staff as quickly as possible in the safest way. The department has developed a fact sheet providing an update for residential aged care workers about when and how they will access COVID-19 vaccines. Please share this fact sheet with your staff.
