28 February 2022 - Letter to aged care providers regarding COVID-19 vaccine boosters

Publication date

Australia is achieving pleasingly high overall rates of vaccination in residential aged care services.  At the same time, there is still a significant gap between the highest and lowest rates achieved to date across the sector, particularly in relation to the booster shot. This gap presents a heightened risk to some aged care residents, especially as we draw closer to the cooler months when there is typically some escalation in risks to residents posed by respiratory viruses.
