NSW Sector Meetings 2022
Ministry of Health COVID19 Boosters for Young People
Youth Action will be holding a consultation with the sector and the NSW Ministry of Health to discuss vaccination and booster uptake in young people in NSW. The uptake in covid vaccine boosters in young people is currently at 58.4%, which is a good start but is behind the ideal targets needed to create a covid safe community. NSW Health would like to talk with the sector on what support young people and the sector need to help encourage the uptake in boosters. Joining us from NSW Health will be Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant.

Capacity Building in 2022
Youth Action will continue to offer capacity building opportunities for youth workers in NSW in 2022.
