COVID-19 vaccination

The Australian Government recently released the COVID-19 Vaccination Roadmap which outlines sites and priority populations for initial vaccinations and the phases in which vaccine doses will be made available in Australia. This Strategy has been developed consistent with the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy released in November 2020.

Based on the Roadmap, NSW Health Local Health Districts will be responsible for the vaccination of priority populations in Phase 1a. General practice involvement in COVID-19 vaccination will be from Phase 1b. All eligible practices and the COVID-19 vaccination workforce will need to complete mandatory training as per the Department of Health.

The training can be accessed on the COVID-19 vaccination training website.

COORDINARE will provide further updates on advice from the Department of Health. You can also keep up to date with important information and advice by visiting the Department of Health and NSW Health websites.
