Flu Vaccination for Entry into Aged Care Facilities
The Coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on all of our lives and the way we go about our daily tasks. Whilst trying to control the pandemic, healthcare officials have realised that contact tracing is an essential and effective way of finding people that may have been exposed to the virus. This enforces what we’ve known all along—that you should always know who is coming in and out of your workspace.
On 18 March 2020, the Prime Minister announced that all visitors to and workers at residential aged care facilities must have the influenza shot before being allowed access. All visitors, health practitioners, volunteers and contract workers such as cleaners, gardeners, and maintenance staff are required to have their influenza shot if they wish to gain entry to the premises.
At the end of the day, these strict protocols have come into place to protect the most vulnerable people in our society. However, many care facilities are questioning how they are going to monitor and track who has had the shot and who hasn’t.
There are a number of options for care facilities and contractors to ensure that those visiting the facility or working there have had the vaccine. This could be a statement or record from a health professional or access to the LinkSafe mobile app.
Tracking Visitors Effectively with LinkSafe
Tracking each and every visitor or contract worker manually can be tedious and there’s always the chance that human error will allow things to slip between the cracks. LinkSafe is an excellent way to ensure that you track all visitors to your care facility and that they have all the necessary training and health certificates before they gain entry.
LinkSafe visitor management software tells you not only who is coming onto your facility, but also gives you automatic insight into whether they have the right requirements, like training and vaccinations, to be there.
The safety is customised to your facility and must be signed by visitors before they enter. This is a great way to ensure that your visitors have all the right training and vaccinations for your facility in a legal sense, and also diminishes the potential for accidents to happen while they are there. With all of the data recorded and sent to a secure central database, you can rest assured that all your visitors are fully compliant.

The LinkSafe software is also an excellent way to identify visitors that are there for legitimate purposes and that have all the right requirements. Our software can control visitor access to certain areas and enables remote monitoring that will observe and record information about your visitors when they enter. Your security team’s job will be a much easier one, as all they need to do is check clearance on the app.
The software comes with expert setup advice, which means your security will be up and running in no time. It’s a quick and easy system that can be used to make the visitor vetting process a much easier one and visitor management process with an extra bit of high-tech security.
When visitors want to gain entry to your facilities, you will be able to take a photo ID of them, collect their signature and then automatically generate a wearable security pass to ensure that the rest of the team know that they are there for legitimate reasons.
