As the Territory’s leading provider of emergency medical response and preparedness, we understand that the safety of our community is of the highest priority and wish to assure our community, clients and patients that we are operating in accordance with the Northern Territory Chief Health Officer’s COVID-19 Directions (No 55) 2021: Directions for mandatory vaccination workers to attend the workplace.
All St John NT staff who visit client premises, for services such as first aid kit restocking or first aid training, have or will be vaccinated by the required dates and will act in accordance with the COVID-19 safety plans of those premises.
All St John NT volunteers and clinical staff who attend community and major events have or will be vaccinated by the required dates and will act in accordance with the COVID-19 safety plans of those sites.
St John NT has internal processes and systems in place, including a register of the COVID-19 vaccination status of all workers, to ensure compliance with current COVID-19 vaccination requirements and any future amendments that may be issued by the Chief Health Office. All staff will also be able to use the Territory Check In app and produce evidence of their current COVID-19 vaccination status if requested.
As the Territory moves towards open borders, we understand that we will need to be vigilant in following the health directives and flexible with possible future changes.
We thank you for your understanding during this period.
