The Australian Government has introduced new COVID-19 vaccination reporting requirements for residential and in-home aged care providers.
The expanded reporting is necessary to identify the potential level of risk each aged care service faces in the context of a COVID-19 outbreak in residential, in-home and community settings. It will inform how those services, residents and workers can best be supported.
While the new reporting requirements start on 27 July 2021, all providers are encouraged to start reporting voluntarily now.
Details of the reporting requirements on COVID-19 vaccination for aged care providers is available on the Department’s website – Reporting requirements on the COVID-19 vaccination status of aged care workforce.
