Hall & Prior Health & Aged Care Group takes flu vaccinations very seriously across the group and we can now report as of June 1, 2021 that our eligible WA staff are fully vaccinated.
The organisation is an industry leader in vaccinations; championing a free influenza vaccine for staff for the past decade that has resulted in outstanding immunisation rates across the group.
In 2020 the WA and NSW’s Governments made it mandatory for all staff and visitors to residential aged care facilities to have an up-to-date influenza vaccination.
Hall & Prior welcomed this mandate, which built on our proud 10 plus year history of leading the aged care sector by providing free influenza vaccinations to our staff.
Michelle Stirling, CNS Infection Prevention and Control said the vaccination rate was worthy of celebrating.
“I commend all of our staff on getting their flu vaccinations at our homes and office clinics throughout Hall & Prior WA in May,” Michelle said.
“We’ve been very encouraged by the effort everyone has made to make sure that they have the current flu shot which in turn helps us keep both our residents and staff safe from this year’s flu virus.
“Having our staff make this a priority is a very important part of infection prevention and control within our homes.”
Hall & Prior requires that all staff, visitors and contractors entering our homes and offices provide evidence of a 2021 influenza vaccination from 1 June 2021.
