Frontline Epworth HealthCare workers across our Melbourne hospitals have begun receiving their COVID-19 vaccination.
More than 800 Epworth employees and doctors will be vaccinated in the initial group of 1A frontline healthcare workers, including staff in our emergency departments at Epworth Richmond and Epworth Geelong and across our intensive care units.
Epworth Richmond ED nurse Bronwyn Potton is among those to be vaccinated recently at a health vaccination hub managed by St Vincent’s Hospital.
Ms Potton urges everyone to consider being vaccinated.
“The COVID-19 vaccines in Australia have passed strict tests by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, which means they are safe and effective.”
“These vaccines will help keep healthcare workers, your family and the community safe.”
