Reminder to visitors to get your 2022 flu vaccinations as they will be a requirement for entry into aged care, please see below: from SA Health website.
Influenza vaccination From 10 June 2022
All staff and visitors to a RACF must be vaccinated against 2022 seasonal influenza. This applies to staff, visitors, health practitioners, students, volunteers and others (for example, cleaners, tradesmen, gardeners, hairdressers, and maintenance staff).
While vaccination for all residents is important to protect themselves and others against influenza, residents have the right to refuse vaccinations. Exemptions There are a small number of exemptions to the influenza vaccination requirement:
> A person who has a medical contraindication to the influenza vaccine (such as person who has a history of anaphylaxis or has had Guillain-Barré Syndrome following vaccination, or who is taking check point inhibitor medication for cancer treatment). o The visitor must provide appropriate evidence to the RACF they wish to visit, for example, a letter from a medical practitioner stating that they have a medical contraindication to the influenza vaccine.
> A person to whom the vaccine is not reasonably available *Note: this includes the summer months when supply of the influenza vaccine is no longer readily available.
> Infants aged 6 months or less. > In the event of an emergency, emergency services personnel are permitted to enter a RACF regardless of immunisation status.
> Visitors who have been called in to provide end of life support to a resident who have not yet received their flu vaccination, and who take all reasonable steps to get vaccinated as soon as practicable after their initial visit.
> The SA Health Exemptions Panel has advised that unvaccinated persons are permitted to enter and remain on the premises of a RACF for the purposes of visiting a resident in the following circumstances:
- The visitor must remain on the outdoor side of the closed window, with the resident to remain indoors.
- Physical distancing must be maintained at all times and there must be no contact with other visitors or staff on the premises.
- The RACF is responsible for ensuring that prohibited persons do not enter or remain on the premises.
The RACF operator is responsible for considering and accepting an unvaccinated person entering the facility under one of the exemptions, based on the evidence provided to them and appropriate documentation should be kept.
