GOCSA follows Government advice on
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
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”.
