hard-to-reach cohorts:

…90.9 per cent of aged-care residents and over 98 per cent of aged-care workers are fully vaccinated; 86.9 per cent of disability residents, 85.4 per cent of NDIS participants and 94.5 per cent of disability support workers are fully vaccinated; 80.1 per cent of Indigenous Australians are fully vaccinated; and 80.1 per cent of 12–15 year-olds are fully vaccinated.1

…accepted the royal commission's recommendation for an increase in the aged-care minutes and we're responding through measures to the residential aged-care services and sustainability funding drive to do that. From 1 July 2024 the minimum staff standard should increase to require approved providers to engage registered nurses, enrolled nurses and personal care workers for the average resident for at least—at least— 215 minutes per resident, per day. This is backed by that extra $3.9 billion in additional funding. We are also supporting our nurses with a wage bonus to attract more nurses into aged care.4

Program;9 and  the role of allied health in aged care.10

Outcome 1: Health Policy, Access and Support 2.9 The committee discussed COVID-19 vaccinations and the role of boosters in reducing rates of serious illness. Chief Medical Officer, Professor Paul Kelly, explained the importance of vaccination in Australia’s public health response

to COVID-19:

There’s no doubt that the absolute best way to avoiding COVID-19 has been vaccination…They are a safe and effective way of preventing death. They are a safe and effective way of preventing severe complications of disease…vaccination is protection against infection as well as severe disease.11
