Supported Independent Living Vaccination Roll Out

The Australian government has begun its roll out of the COVID-19 Vaccine.

The past year has been a difficult one for many Australians. The team at Nextt would like to acknowledge the difficult times we have experienced and thank you for working with us as we have had to adjust services in line with government advice.

The Australian government has begun its roll out of the COVID-19 Vaccine. The government has communicated that the vaccine is free, safe and voluntary. Priority populations have been set up based on risk. Amongst the first groups to receive this vaccination are those receiving Supported Independent Living services.

The plan provided by the government is for teams of health employees to visit SIL and supply the vaccine to those who have consented to receive it.

We have written to our SIL clients/family/representatives this week to provide them with the information they need to make this decision and to record their decision and provide to the vaccination teams.

Once you have made this decision, please let us know so we can ensure your decision is respected. This can be by written confirmation on whether you do or do not wish either yourself, or your loved one to receive this vaccination.

If you have not received this communication from us, or if you have any questions, please contact your House Leader.
