The CEO of one of Perth’s largest aged care groups says both state and federal governments need to do more to ensure staff in are vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible.

Graeme Prior, who runs Hall and Prior Health and Aged Care Group told Russell Woolf only 298 staff out of 1500 have been fully vaccinated, despite the company being as proactive as possible.

“Am I concerned? Yes, there’s always a heightened level of concern when it happens elsewhere in the country,” Mr Prior said.

“We should not take this for granted at all, it could happen here. The consequence is devastating so we have to understand that. Are we ready for it? I believe we are.”

He’s hoping to have that number at 100 per cent within 90 days. Listen to him tell Russell how he’s hoping to achieve that.
