COVID-19 Vaccination Program for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples
COVID-19 is spreading quickly. Getting our mob vaccinated as soon as possible is the best way we can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect ourselves, our loved ones and the community.
All Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people who are 12 years and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.
This toolkit is designed to help you:
- communicate current information about the COVID-19 vaccines and the vaccination program
- increase awareness of the current COVID-19 rules in place
- continue to reinforce the importance of practising COVID safe behaviours, even after vaccination.
The toolkit will also help you to work with individuals, Elders and communities to increase understanding that COVID-19 vaccination will help protect our whole mob.
Please contact MOH-CAH-COVID19@health.nsw.gov.au if you have any questions or would like additional collateral to help communicate with your community or network. You can also find Aboriginal communication resources on the NSW Health website.
Thank you for your support in helping protect mob. You can find the full vaccine toolkit available as a PDF in our library here.
