COVID Vaccine
Mercy Connect have been advised that we are to be included in the 1B roll out of the COVID vaccine.

Residents who live in group homes of two or more participants will be included in the 1B roll out, which enables participants to be vaccinated at home or in the pop up clinic.  Participants must have consent from their medical guardians prior to any vaccination being given.  Team Leaders are currently working with the relevant guardians to obtain this consent.  The roll out for the vaccines is to commence from 22 March, however a clear date for Mercy Connect residents has not been given.

Mercy Connect staff are eligible for the vaccination.  A letter from Mercy Connect stating that you work in the disability sector will be provided.  To request a letter please email Rosie Busuttil

Staff will be provided, as soon as the relevant information is received, an update  and process for receiving the vaccine.  Staff are encourage to visit Australian Department of Health  for further information on the vaccine.

Together we grow.
