Business owners wanting to encourage their employees to get the jab now have a handy set of tools to use.
All the hard work and thinking about the best messaging has been done for you, with the release of the Australian Government’s COVID-19 Vaccination Business Kit, part of their Arm Yourself campaign.
Healthy North Coast CEO Julie Sturgess says local business should check out the kits.
‘The free resources offer lots of different ways to share information with employees, from posters for the staff room, to templates for internal staff communications, staff newsletter updates, and pre-written email messages.
‘You can add your organisation or business name to the materials and help educate your staff on the importance of getting their COVID-19 vaccination,’ said Ms Sturgess.
The Australian Government Department of Health has developed the Arm Yourself campaign to encourage Australians to vaccinate to protect themselves and the wider community from COVID-19.
There are information sheets, digital assets, infographics and pre-written letter templates such as a personal message from the CEO, and email templates such as advising what your business is doing to support staff to get vaccinated.
Australian organisations and businesses can even offer cash or other rewards to people who have been fully vaccinated under the Government’s national COVID-19 vaccination program.
The business kit shares what other organisations have done to incentivise vaccination by offering cash prizes, food and shopping vouchers, luxury escapes and travel credits.
Campaign assets include:

Update provided 21 April 2022.
As you know, Lismore Skin Clinic in Molesworth Street was destroyed in the recent floods, and we are trying to rebuild the site as soon as we can.
In the meantime we will be moving to St Vincent’s Hospital Specialist Medical Centre – Level 4, Suite 12 – 20 Dalley Street Lismore.
We hope to be up and running in the next two weeks (by early to mid May 2022) and our receptionists will soon begin calling our patients to rebook their appointments and catch up with their needs.
Once we have a firm opening date we will update this notification.
We look forward to seeing you soon in our new premises.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding in these heartbreaking times – stay safe.
