SCSS - COVID Vaccine
Southern Cross Support Services is dedicated to providing a safe and secure future for our communities.
Vaccines are an important way the community can prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. Safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations will play an instrumental role in ending the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Southern Cross Support Services works with immunocompromised members of our communities and COVID poses a significant risk to them. Older Australians, people with disability, First Australians, and people with comorbidities that increase their risk if exposed to the virus. The risk for these individuals is reflected in the priority group allocation in the Australian Government’s National Rollout Strategy.
Southern Cross Support Services values the health and wellbeing of every Client, Employee, Volunteer, Student, and Director who engages with our organisation. As such; Southern Cross Support Services recommends that you read to understand all information supplied by QLD Health to make an informed decision regarding the COVID-19 vaccination in line with the phased accessibility timetable released by the Australian Department of Health.
