Workplace COVID-19 Vaccinations
We are one of the limited authorised organisations that can administer onsite corporate Covid-19 vaccination programs under the Department of Health’s National Vaccine Administration Partners Program (VAPP)
Booster vaccinations are available to people aged 18 years and over and who had their second dose more than six months ago.
Getting the booster vaccination has not been made mandatory by the Government, however it is highly recommended as it will strengthen your immune system and help maintain a high level of protection against serious illness from the COVID-19 virus. We have previously spoken about the benefits to business of reducing employee absenteeism with robust staff flu vaccinations, minimising disruption to the workplace, and this remains pertinent with the increased risk of Covid-19 infection.
AVS are currently scheduling onsite Covid-19 booster vaccination clinics for 2024 and with anticipated high interest as more people return-to-work onsite either entirely or in hybrid workplace/work-from-home arrangements, we highly recommend booking a Covid-19 vaccination clinic early to secure dates and avoid disappointment.
Other than for Aged Care and Disability Services, the onsite Covid-19 vaccination program for booster shots is not being partially funded by the Federal Government. Organisations wishing to hold Covid-19 vaccination clinics at their workplace must fund the service (similar to a flu vaccination program).
In limited circumstances, coadministration of flu and Covid-19 vaccinations may be possible. Please let us know if this is something you are interested in, and AVS will phone to discuss whether it is possible based on your companies’ circumstances.
With more staff coming together to work in person in 2024, it remains important for organisations to remain proactive in reducing the impact to both employees and business from Covid-19 infection.
