We are excited that we are one step closer to ensuring the safety of our staff and participants with the Government’s announcement to roll out the Pfizer COVID vaccine from Monday 22 February to top-tier priority groups across Australia.
We understand that of the 80,000 doses being released, 30,000 will be made available to aged care and disability care residents and workers.
At this stage, we do not have exact dates for when the vaccine will be rolled out to our residents and staff, but we will endeavour to keep you up to date with all developments as they come to hand.
