St.Giles staff members have rolled up their sleeves to help do their bit and get fully vaccinated to protect vulnerable community members.
Half of St.Giles workers across the state are already vaccinated but the organisation created a vaccination hub to get their unvaccinated employees vaccinated.
St.Giles worker Elisha Deegan said that the uptake of the initiative had been encouraging.
"Our staff and the people that work with people with disabilities and the people themselves, giving them access to vaccinations is super important," she said.
"We absolutely have some participants who are a little bit afraid of going out, especially when things flare up on the mainland, that certainly makes things a little more frightening for people."
In a twist of fate, St.Giles was formed as a result of the polio pandemic and is working hard to help protect the vulnerable community members like people with disability and the elderly through the coronavirus pandemic.
Vaccination efforts in Tasmania have seen some claims of inconsistent messaging to the public.
Ms Deegan said that the company was hopeful the program would inspire more people to get their COVID-19 vaccination in the months to come.
"If people can see that the staff at a big corporation like St.Giles are confident enough to have a vaccination, hopefully that will help them see that having a vaccination us a great thing to do and it's safe," she said.
Earlier this week, the federal government announced the delivery of a million Pfizer vaccines had been received to further vaccination efforts.

St.Giles chief executive Andrew Billing welcomed the new million doses of Pfizer vaccine which arrived in Australia this week.
"The vaccine will be distributed to the states on a per capita basis, which is fair and transparent,'' he said.
"At this point in history we are fortunate,because vaccines have been created and we could out-run COVID, but it will take a massive community effort.''
