  • Aged care facility residents have been prioritised as part of Australia’s COVID-19 National Roll-Out Strategy, along with workers in residential aged care facilities.  Information will be provided ahead of vaccinators attending your aged care facility.  Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will help protect them. The vaccine will be safe, free and voluntary. Vaccination against COVID-19 is strongly recommended for people in residential aged care.  Learn more at…
