Patients over the age of 16 attending YHG will be required to have had their first vaccination prior to 22 October, 2021 and to be fully vaccinated before 30 November 2021. Children under 12, for whom there is no available vaccine, will be welcome of course. Patients with a government issued vaccination exemption certificate will also be able to attend YHG..
Our policy regarding vaccination status at YHG is aimed at protecting the health of our patients, the YHG team and the entire community and it is in accordance with current Federal and Victorian Government health sector directives and medical advice to do what we can to prevent the spread of COVID19. We believe that the vaccine is an important part of keeping the Australian community safe and healthy.
However, the important measures we’ve used for 18 months are still very important and will continue to be our key safety measures:
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and waterways on which our offices stand, the Boon Wurrung, Wurundjeri and Wathaurong people, and pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
