Older adults are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 and research shows that people aged 85 and older are among the most vulnerable. So, when the Government started rolling out vaccinations to essential workers a few months ago, our Aged Care frontline staff lined up to get vaccinated.
One of the first was Ashley Currie, Key Account Manager for Aged Care. He says it was an easy decision and a simple and painless process.
“We’re on the front line – our job is working alongside healthcare providers as they continue to care for vulnerable people. The way we see it, Cubro has a duty of care to our staff and our customers, and being fully vaccinated is the best defence we have.”
This is why all Cubro’s Aged Care frontline staff, including Account Managers, Service and Maintenance Technicians, and Delivery and Install team; are now fully vaccinated and will carry Ministry of Health certification to help reassure customers that they are taking every step possible to keep people safe.
In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine, all our Aged Care frontline staff have the influenza vaccine. Cubro offers free flu vaccinations to all staff each year. “By getting both vaccines, we are each doing our part to minimise the risk of infection,” says Ashley.
