27 May 2021

This afternoon, at 3:20pm Jewish Care Victoria was contacted by Healthcare Australia and the Department of Health’s Aged Care Vaccination Taskforce advising that they are bringing forward the COVID-19 vaccination day for our elders living at our Residential Home Windsor to tomorrow, 28 May 2021. The original vaccination date of 11 May 2021 was cancelled by the government appointed provider HCA and was ultimately rescheduled to 4 June 2021.

This afternoon, Jewish Care also received advice from the Chief Medical Officer, Professor Paul Kelly, that shortening the interval between the administration of the influenza vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine can be justified given the prevailing local epidemiological situation.

Whilst the late notice creates some operational challenges, we are delighted that our elders will receive their first COVID-19 vaccination injection tomorrow.
