Between Monday 19 July and Sunday 1 August disability workers, persons with disability and their carers can attend any government's community vaccination clinics in Western Australia without an appointment to receive their COVID-19 Vaccination.
We are grateful for the success of the circuit-breaker lockdown this week. Only 1 new case of COVID-19 was recorded today and the lockdown for Perth and Peel is ending as planned at midnight tonight. A few restrictions will remain in place for the next 3 days.
We know these are tough and uncertain times however we want to ensure you we are here for you! Disability Services are classified as essential services so we will be continuing to provide you with the support you need to stay safe and connected during this COVID Lockdown.
Our main priority is the safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees and the general community. Based on the current government health advice our supports will be going ahead as usual.
People with disability over 16 are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We have put together some easy read information for you so you can make an informed decision and do whatever is best for you.
The three-day lockdown for Perth and Peel has ended as planned at midnight but a number of restrictions will remain in place for the next four days. We continue to provide services but some of your supports might look a bit different than usual.
Following announcements, we can confirm that the WA Government has declared a State of Emergency for Western Australia.
