Northern Rivers Echo
Recently NSW Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation Matt Kean MP came to Lismore to launch the Rebuild Assist web page www.rebuildassist.nsw.gov.au to help flood-affected families of the Northern Rivers get back on their feet.
The web page is a one-stop shop where people can search for licensed, insured local tradespeople to help repair and rebuild their homes and businesses.
Rebuild Assist also provides tailored information and directs people to other government websites including links about insurance, emergency building provisions, as well as providing safety and building fact sheets.
This week is World Immunisation Week and itís a great reminder for everyone to ensure their kidsí vaccinations and their own are up to date.
The theme of this yearís World Immunisation Week is #VaccinesWork.
We all have a part to play in keeping our community healthy. I recently had the whooping cough vaccination in the lead-up to the birth of my granddaughter.
Immediately after World Immunisation Week, NSW will start a school-based vaccination program for meningococcal disease, targeting Year 11 and 12 students in secondary schools. The vaccine will provide protection against meningococcal serogroups A, C and Y, as well as W.
