Home vaccination program for people who are housebound

Housebound residents of South Eastern Sydney and Sydney Local Health Districts can now get vaccinated at home.

Reading Time: 2 minutes 

The Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Networks (CESPHN) have developed the Vax at Home program which is being coordinating across South Eastern Sydney and Sydney Local Health Districts for people who are housebound and unable to leave their homes to obtain a COVID-19 vaccination. 

CESPHN are aware that some people in our community may not be able to access a GP or vaccination hub to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. As a result, the Vax at Home program was developed to address this issue.

The CESPHN Vax at Home Program is ONLY for those people who are housebound and not able to leave their house to receive a COVID-19 vaccination (their carers will also be able to be vaccinated).

The Program is being offered across Sydney Local Health District and South Eastern Local Health District.
