The Hobart, Tasmania NDIA office will be closed for the duration of the Tasmanian lockdown announced on Friday, 15 October 2021.
Eligible NDIS providers in Victoria will be able to claim a one-off payment from the NDIA to cover costs for support workers to receive their COVID-19 vaccination.
The NDIA and The Pharmacy Guild Australia have joined forces to make it easier for NDIS participants to book and access COVID-19 vaccinations through local pharmacies.
The NDIS has introduced a temporary measure to further support participants during the COVID-19 pandemic, with those in lockdown areas no longer needing to use their support funding to pay someone to cook and shop for them.
NDIS participants who are yet to have their COVID-19 vaccine are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. A COVID-19 vaccine will help to protect you, your family and people you care for.
The NSW Government has extended the deadline for disability workers aged 16 years and over who live or work in a local government area (LGA) of concern to receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to attend work.
