Targeting COVID-19 vaccinations in vulnerable populations

In order to increase the vaccination rate of vulnerable populations across South Eastern NSW against COVID-19, COORDINARE - the South Eastern NSW Primary Health Network (PHN) is providing support for innovative, local, short-term activities.

The purpose of the funding is to support existing organisations and health services in their activities within South Eastern NSW that increase the rate of vaccinations to vulnerable populations, including but not limited to:

  • those who are experiencing homelessness, including those living on the streets, in emergency accommodation, boarding houses or between temporary shelters;
  • people with a disability or who are frail and cannot leave home (homebound individuals);
  • people in rural and remote areas with limited healthcare options, including those who cannot travel to a regional centre;
  • culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse people, especially asylum seekers and refugees and those in older age groups who may find it difficult to use other vaccination services;
  • children aged 5-11 who have complex needs, who are not captured by another suitable vaccination channel; and
  • any other vulnerable groups identified as requiring dedicated support to access vaccinations.

Funding opportunity coming soon!
