Key Considerations to Factor into your COVID safe vaccination roll out

  • Do you currently have a sharps disposal unit or units in place today? 
  • Have you considered if the increased volume of sharps waste can be safely contained in your current sharps disposal units, if you have one already on site?
  • Do you envisage that your PPE clothing waste will increase and have you got adequate measures in place to handle the excess quantity of waste safely with no risk of cross contamination?
  • How large is your premises or clinic? Have you ensured that the layout of your clinic or premises allows for safe social distancing during busier periods of patient foot traffic? 
  • Are you sure that your premises are well ventilated and has there been a consideration to remove pathogens and viruses from the air entirely to minimise risk? 
  • Have you ensured that your patients have adequate access to hand sanitiser? 
  • Do you have a COVID-Safe safety officer to regularly sanitise and disinfect seating and surfaces?
