North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network partnered with Health Issues Centre to convene a COVID-19 vaccination forum for disability workers and carers on Tuesday, 24 August 2021.

It is vital that disability workers and carers are vaccinated immediately. A recording of the webinar is now available to help disability care providers in our region make informed decisions and access vaccines. We have also provided short highlights of important points below, along with more resources.
