Pulse Oximeters Available to Vulnerable Members of the Community

Published on Monday, 14 March 2022 at 10:50:19 AM

The State Health Department is offering free pulse oximeters to vulnerable members of the community.

If you can answer yes to the following questions you are eligible to receive a free pulse oximeter:

  • Are you non-Aboriginal and over 65?
  • Are you Aboriginal and over 50?
  • Are you pregnant?

If you fit into one of the above groups, you can pick up your Pulse Oximeter at the Katanning Hub CRC located at 42 Austral Terrace, Katanning. One per household is available.

A pulse oximeter is a small peg-like device that clips onto your finger to read your heart rate and blood oxygen level.

Having a pulse oximeter allows you to participate in the free COVID at-home care program if you test positive, allowing symptoms to be tracked and provides support during your recovery.
