    COVID-19 Vaccinations for Resthaven Clients in the Community

    We encourage all residents and community clients to be fully vaccinated, including having a COVID booster.

    It is very important that anyone with COVID-like symptoms or who have COVID-19, or are living with someone in their household who has COVID-19, notifies their Resthaven coordinator or site as soon as possible. It is imperative that you let our staff know this before entering the home. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for all aged care workers. Resthaven encourages all staff to access the COVID vaccination.

    Do we still need other precautions to stop the spread?

    Yes, we need to continue COVIDSafe practices (eg hand hygiene, physical distancing). Having the vaccine is just one part of keeping the community safe and healthy.

    Where can you find trusted information?

    You can find information, including translated information on the Commonwealth Department of Health’s COVID-19 vaccine website.

    You can also talk to your GP about COVID-19 vaccines and why vaccination is an important part of keeping our community safe and healthy.

    Please refer to Resthaven’s COVID-19 Information for our communities page, for all general information about the COVID-19 pandemic including the latest visitor information.
