Do you know of anyone who is having difficulty accessing COVID-19 Vaccine?
We are here to help.
The Disability Trust and COORDINARE, SE NSW PHN are working together to ensure that vulnerable people in South Eastern NSW, who are ‘housebound’, have access to the COVID-19 Vaccine.
Vulnerable people are those who are aged 12 – 100+ years that are:
- Individuals living with a disability (sensory, cognitive, intellectual, psychosocial and physical) including:
* Individuals who are living by themselves in a home with or without family of carer support
* People with a disability who live in congregate settings
- People with immune-compromising conditions (including people being treated for cancer), multiple comorbidities, chronic lung disease, chronic neurological conditions, and those with severe mental health conditions.
- Carers or others who may be living in the same household as a person described above if they require vaccination and consent.
How we can help?
Determine whether a person is suitable for the service by answering enquiries from potential patients, their carers, and other relevant organisations, and assess medical and Health District referrals.
For those who are eligible The Disability Trust will liaise with the person, GP networks and vaccination providers to provide in-home COVID-19 vaccinations.
Please see the attached flyer for more information. This flyer can also be distributed to your networks, or please feel free to share our Facebook post.
