08 JunCommunications resources about vaccinations and managing symptoms
New resources have been developed by the Victorian Department of Education and Training to support services to communicate with parents and families about vaccinations, and the management of COVID and flu symptoms.
A template letter is available with:
- information about the free flu vaccination program and how to access it
- details of support for children with disabilities, and also those who have mild anxiety or behavioural issues.
- information for families about the challenges of providing continuity of service at this time
- steps the service is taking to maintain a COVIDSafe operating environment.
A communications pack is also available to help services share information about the importance of COVID-19 and flu vaccinations. The pack includes a template letter from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), encouraging parents and carers to vaccinate children this winter. Translated versions of the RACGP letter are also available.
