COVID-19 Vaccination Statement – implications for resuscitation and first aid training

The Australian Resuscitation Council firmly believes that vaccination is a critical part of Australia’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaccination not only helps protect yourself, your learners, and your community, but also supports your colleagues – especially those caring for the people who contract the virus.

We strongly recommend that every instructor takes up the opportunity to be vaccinated, regardless of their employment.

We respect an individual’s right to have their own opinions, but it is the Council’s view that there is no place for anti-vaccination messages, nor any promotion of anti-vaccination claims including on social media and advertising.

Who is the Australian Resuscitation Council?

The Australian Resuscitation Council is a voluntary co-ordinating body which represents all major groups involved in the teaching and practice of resuscitation.  The Australian Resuscitation Council is sponsored by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. The Australian Resuscitation Council produces Guidelines to meet its objectives in fostering uniformity and simplicity in resuscitation techniques and terminology. Guidelines are produced after consideration of all available scientific and published material and are only issued after acceptance by all member organisations. This does not imply, however, that methods other than those recommended are ineffective. It is the policy of the Australian Resuscitation Council to respect the autonomy of member organisations.
