Phase 1b COVID-19 vaccine roll out

Community based mental health workers become eligible for the COVID-19 vaccinations as part of Phase 1b commencing 22 March 2021.

More than 6 million people are included in Phase 1b and roughly 1,000 GP clinics will provide the vaccinations. The federal government says that figure will climb to 4,000 by the end of April.

Information on who will be vaccinated and where during Phase 1b is available here.

This fact sheet lists the general practices, Aboriginal Controlled Community Health Services, and GP-led respiratory clinics where COVID-19 vaccinations are available to people in Phase 1b of the rollout.

Most people in Phase 1B can make an appointment through the COVID Vaccine Information and Location Service or the provider’s own booking system and attend the clinic to be vaccinated.

To receive the vaccine, workers will need to show identification, complete the Eligibility declaration form and have a letter from their organisation to confirm they are currently employed on a paid or unpaid (voluntary) basis.

The advice from NSW Health Public Health Response Branch for residential disability care providers and home care service providers was updated on 19 March 2021 and is available on the NSW Health Disability Support Providers webpage here.

We are seeking more information from the NSW Ministry of Health and will provide updates as soon as possible.
