All in-home and community aged care workers in NSW are invited to a special live webinar this Monday 25 October from 3:30pm – 4:30pm AEDT.
The webinar will support NSW in-home and community aged care workers, including volunteers and subcontractors, to:
find out more about NSW’s public health direction on mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for aged care workers and how it applies to them
get information about COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine safety
find out how to access a priority COVID-19 vaccination.
The webinar will have a live Q&A discussion to answer questions workers might have on COVID-19 vaccination and on the NSW public direction for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for in-home and community aged care workers.
Commonwealth Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Professor Michael Kidd AM will host the webinar with panellists including:
Stefanie Williams, Director, Aged Care, NSW Ministry of Health
James Broughton, Principal Policy Officer, Aged Care, NSW Ministry of Health
Participants can also submit written questions during the live webinar.
Aged care providers are asked to circulate information on the webinar to all workers (including all full time permanent and casual workers, contractors, volunteers engaged by facilities and students on placement) and to encourage attendance – particularly by those who are yet to receive their vaccination.
This is an excellent opportunity for in-home and community aged care workers to have any concerns addressed directly.
Please note the webinar format will enable up to 1000 participants to join the live event. The webinar will be recorded and made available on the health.gov.au website.
The details to join the webinar are provided below. You do not need to register in advance and the webinar is free.
