Aged care providers have a duty of care and responsibility towards the consumers within their care. This falls under the Aged Care Act 1997 guidelines. The quality of care provided is governed by the Quality Care Principles 2014, which include immunisation schemes for both staff and consumers. Ensuring immunisations across the life span is up to date is important so that we can protect those who are vulnerable and avoid an unnecessary burden within our healthcare system. During this session we will also be providing you with a refresher on the National Vaccine Storage Guidelines focussing on mobile or outreach immunisation clinics which will be vital in implementing catch-up programs as well as a pandemic response vaccine.
