As directed by the Public Health Order, mandatory vaccination is in place for NSW Health Workers and requires staff to receive at least the first dose by 8th of September. Korthotics is fully committed to helping protect our community and staff safe, as such, all orthotists and administration staff (including the receptionist) have received both doses of the Covid-19 vaccination.
The vaccine is highly effective against severe illness, hospitalisation and death, and will keep staff, patients and visitors safe from COVID-19.
NSW Health and other employers are required under Work, Health and Safety laws to implement "all reasonably practical control measures" to ensure the health and safety of staff.
