The imminent rollout of the COVID-19 vaccinations in South Australia has seen an increase in consent requests for OPA clients. The OPA is aware that all accommodation sites across South Australia are preparing for the rollout and service providers are seeking consent from the OPA where a resident is under the guardianship of the Public Advocate.

The OPA is finalising its consent process as a matter of priority.

For service providers and clients who are seeking feedback regarding vaccination consent – the OPA will be in contact as soon as possible and we thank your for your patience during this busy time.
