Following is some important information about vaccinations and COVID-19 screening. Please take the time to read and share with relevant family members.
The following dates have been set for consenting RESIDENTS to have their COVID-19 vaccination, the Pfizer vaccination. For those who have not yet decided, the consent form is available by contacting us. This is likely the last opportunity to give consent for the Pfizer vaccination for your loved one. The vaccination is not mandatory.
If you have not yet consented and wish to do so, please fill in the attached form and return it via email to email@example.com or reception at your facility by Friday 14 May 2021.
More information will be sent next week to each site on specific times. For those who wish to be with their loved one when the vaccinations are conducted please check with your Care Manager or reception towards the end of the week.
At this point, Shepparton Villages staff can access the relevant COVID-19 vaccination at the hub run by Goulburn Valley Health at the Macintosh Centre.
Just a reminder that flu vaccinations for residents are organised through the resident’s GP. We have informed GP clinics of the dates for the COVID-19 vaccination and requested they do not administer the flu vaccination within 14 days of the above dates for those residents having the COVID-19 vaccination. There must be at least 14 days between the flu vaccination and the COVID-19 vaccination, or vice versa.
Zipline is the new electronic screening tool in the foyer of all our residential care homes. This replaces the need to fill in hard copy forms on arrival and Zipline will also take your temperature. We still have door monitors in place to assist with the initial log in - after that, the process is very simple each time you visit.
You must log in via Zipline for every visit and log out on departure. Please continue to conduct good hand hygiene on entry, maintain social distancing and adhere to density quotient signs on all communal and private rooms. Please note, our dining areas are for residents only.
Thanks for taking the time to read this important communication. If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss with your Care Manager.
