2021 FLU VACCINATIONS FOR VISITORS TO MACS

As part of managing our Risk Exposure to Residents and ensuring we provide our residents with the safest living environment as possible, a decision has been made that all visitors over the age of 18 years of age must provide us with a current 2021 flu vaccination certificate no later than Monday 31 May 2021.

You can email this into us clearly stating who you will be visiting by replying to this email or bring it in for us to copy.  From 1 June 2021 this will be checked as part of our screening processes prior to entry.

Our visitor pods will be opened for visits if you do not wish to have the flu vaccination.  You will need to speak to Heather at reception if you wish to make an appointment by calling 52796800.

We remain concerned about the lateness of the flu vaccination this year taking into consideration the COVID vaccination for our residents and want to ensure that we do everything we can to keep our residents safe and well during this winter period.

We are commencing our staff flu vaccination process this week and encouraging everyone to participate.

Even with the slightest sniffle, cold or sore throat we ask that you please refrain from visiting.  We can certainly arrange for you to connect with your loved one in a variety of ways.  Just let us know.

Please also keep abreast of any Health Department guideline or directives if you travel interstate to ensure you have not visited any hot spots.

Just a further reminder and not related to COVID, our next Community Engagement Forum zoom meeting will be held on Thursday 13 May – if you would like to participate in this, please email our Executive Assistant Sandy on sandyf@macs.org.au and she will send through the zoom invitation details to you.

Take care everyone and please continue to wash those hands x 2, keep on social distancing and make sure you wear your mask especially at MACS!!

Coming into winter we need to be extra vigilant.

 Kind regards

 

Joy Leggo – Chief Executive Officer
