Only 20 per cent of the 300 staff at Peninsula Villages aged care home in Umina Beach have received at least one dose of a vaccine.

CEO Shane Neaves told Jim Wilson the government’s confusing mixed messages about the AstraZeneca vaccine has further impaired his staff’s willingness to get vaccinated.

“Staff are voting with their feet and not getting immunised.

“It’s going to be a hard sell, because … there’s this flip-flop message.”
