GOCSA follows Government advice on

vaccines

January 2022 The State’s peak Greek community body, GOCSA Inc. has issued a statement urging the Greek community members to follow the advice of State health authorities on vaccines. “The Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia wishes to inform you that our organization is in full compliance with the South Australian Government’s vaccination requirements against Covid 19 in relation to the Ridleyton Nursing Home and Social Services for our seniors. Ridleyton Nursing Home is already closed to all people over the age of 12 who have not received all doses of Covid 19 approved vaccines. With regard to Community social services for the elderly, all staff, including support staff, volunteers and external collaborators, are already fully vaccinated against Covid 19. The same policy applies to our Community School teaching staff. It is noted that all government-funded services must ensure that only fully vaccinated workers, volunteers and external support workers can provide services to vulnerable older people Vaccination remains the most effective way of protecting against Covid 19 and preventing hospitalization or even death, especially for the elderly. Under the weight of the new wave of Covid 19 in our State, the Greek Community adds its own voice to that of the Government and calls on those members of the community who have not yet been vaccinated to do so immediately and without further delay. Talk to your local doctor or pharmacist to arrange this. Let us listen to the advice of medical experts rather than hearsay. Only by shielding ourselves against this deadly virus, through vaccination, will we be able to regain our freedom and return to the normality of our lives and activities. Let’s strive to create a culture where we all care for each other”.
