Interconnect Healthcare supporting us to stay safe

There have been many challenges throughout this pandemic and access to vaccines within the disability sector has been a major one.

It is important that our staff are vaccinated, to help stop the spread and impact of COVID-19 within our organisation and protect participants and colleagues. We welcome the Government mandates that all staff are vaccinated to work onsite and have supported our staff in getting vaccinated within the stated time periods. However, it hasn’t always been easy to access the COVID vaccine since its introduction last year.

We have been relieved and grateful for the support of Interconnect Healthcare for allowing us to make accessing the vaccine much easier for staff. In the second half of last year, the medical practice came onsite to our offices at 773 Warrigal Road to vaccinate staff; and, on Friday 4 February, they visited again to administer booster doses to staff who were due to receive it.

We are grateful for connections such as the one we have with Interconnect Healthcare. The support they have provided help ensure the safety of both staff and participants during these uncertain times.

Our community connections help us to support OCC participants live and contribute with confidence, fulfilment and self-determination, every day and for their futures.
