On 28 June, the National Cabinet agreed on the requirement that it be mandatory for all residential aged care workers to have their covid-19 vaccination from 17 September 2021.
Residential aged care workers will be required to have received a minimum first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine by this date.
We strongly encourage all Social Carers on the platform to be vaccinated regardless of what Members you support.
What do I need?
As you are working as an essential worker, you will be required to show proof of service at the time of getting your vaccination. This letter states you are providing core support services to clients within the community who have care requirements due to disability and ageing.
Where to book your vaccination?
Information on how to book your vaccine appointment can be found at the Department of Health.
Keeping a record of your vaccination
As vaccinations for residential aged care workers will be mandatory from 17 September 2021, please ensure that you keep a record of your vaccination as this may be requested from you in the future.
