COVID-19 update 26 February
Achieve Australia supports and welcomes the Government’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout that started this week. We are glad to see that Phase 1 includes people with disability and vulnerable community groups, the health, aged care and disability work forces.
Vaccination against COVID-19 can save lives and higher vaccination rates can make outbreaks much less likely in the community in the future. Staff and clients in our accommodation services are expected to be part of Phase 1 of the rollout. Currently, we are waiting on timeframes and further instructions from the Department of Health on when the vaccine will be available for clients and our teams.
For now, the Government has provided a COVID-19 vaccination consent form for people to fill in to receive the vaccine. Clients of Achieve Australia can fill in and send your completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or provide it to your local Service Manager.
While we wait for the vaccine our teams continue to follow COVID-19 policies and procedures to help keep everyone safe.
If you would like more information about the rollout, please see the latest information provided by the Government via the links below.
If you have any questions about our response to COVID-19, please contact your local manager or phone 1300 22 44 38. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available and thank you for working with us as we help our community stay safe.
