Workplace Flu Immunisation Program
In the interests of public health, Eastern Health Authority will continue to provide Workplace Flu Immunisation services within our capabilities.
Understandably, enquiries and demand for workplace influenza vaccination is currently very high; however, where possible we will endeavour to offer this service to new enquiries where resources are available.
Although the alarming nature of COVID-19 has created a sense of urgency to vaccinate against flu as early as possible, we reiterate that SA Health guidelines recommend mid-April as the best commencement date so that the longevity and effectiveness of the vaccine can be at optimum.
What is Eastern Health Authority doing to protect the health and safety of our team and the community?
We are taking all necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of our team and the community by:
- Sanitizing spaces, furniture, handles, equipment regularly
- Washing hands often with soap and water
- Utilising hand sanitizer (containing minimum 60% alcohol) if soap and water is not readily available
- Avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Cleaning AND disinfecting frequently touched surfacesdaily in the workplace
- Adhering to social distancing guidelines within the workplace and at public clinic venues
The health and wellbeing of our staff is being continuously monitored in line with Commonwealth guidelines to ensure that they are fit and well and asymptomatic prior to vising your workplace. Currently this excludes staff from working who may:
