New information available for the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in aged care facilities

18 Feb 2021

The Department of Health has published new information—a readiness toolkit—for residential aged care facilities about preparing for the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines and obtaining and recording consent for residents. While the Commonwealth is providing an in-reach service for residents of aged care facilities, there may be occasions where GPs are contacted by a RACF as part of assessing a resident’s suitability for a vaccination. 

More information is available from the Department of Health here.
