What you need to know

  • COVID-19 restrictions will ease as vaccination rates rise
  • Unvaccinated people with disability will be especially prone to the virus
  • The Australian Government is hosting an important webinar 3.00pm to 4.30pm Friday 8 October
  • Hear from senior Government officials on steps to hasten vaccination rates

Don’t miss tomorrow’s important webinar on supports being put in place to help ensure people with disability and workers to access vaccines and discuss what providers can do to support that effort.

As restrictions ease, the risk for people left unvaccinated is going to escalate - leaving people with disability, whose comparative vaccination rate lags the general population, especially exposed.

Together with the Department of Social Services, NDS invites you to another important opportunity to hear the latest.

The webinar will be co-chaired by Laurie Leigh, NDS Interim Chief Executive Officer,  and A/g Deputy Secretary Disability and Carers Luke Mansfield. Senior officials from the National COVID-19 Vaccines Taskforce, the NDIA and the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission will join a panel to contribute to a sector update and answer questions.
