COVID-19 vaccine information

The Australian Government and the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) have advised that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, free, and voluntary, and strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated; people who have a COVID-19 vaccination have a much lower chance of getting sick from COVID-19.

In preparation for the residential aged care rollout, all aged care providers are required to obtain appropriate immunization consent from residents or their nominated representatives. To ensure consent is informed, residents, their family, carers and decision makers may wish to engage with their GP, or other health professionals to discuss the risks and benefits of the vaccine, and the clinical suitability of the resident to receive the vaccine.

We look forward to the COVID-19 vaccination rollout across Scalabrini and supporting residents and staff through the process.

COVID–19 symptoms

COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization.

Older people (60+ years of age, or 50+ for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) are more susceptible to getting sick with COVID-19. The risk of serious illnes, and death, increases with age, particularly those who have chronic illnesses or who may have a weakened immune system.
