Workplace COVID-19 Vaccinations
We are one of the limited authorised organisations that can administer onsite corporate Covid-19 vaccination programs under the Department of Health’s National Vaccine Administration Partners Program (VAPP)
Australian Vaccine Services (AVS) are pleased to announce that we have been appointed by the Department of Health to the National Vaccine Administration Partners Program (VAPP), which allows AVS to administer Covid-19 vaccinations in workplaces.
Booster vaccinations are now available to people that are 18 years and over and had their second dose was more than six months ago.
Getting the booster vaccination has not been made mandatory by the Government, however it is highly recommended as it will strengthen your immune system and help maintain a high level of protection against serious illness from the COVID-19 virus.
Due to the varied timing that your staff would have likely had their 2nd dose, AVS are currently scheduling onsite Covid-19 booster and flu vaccinations clinics throughout all of 2022.
Due to the high demand for Nurse Immunisers nationally and that many people are now eligible for their booster shot, we highly recommend booking Covid-19 vaccination clinics early to secure dates.
Other than for Aged Care and Disability Services, onsite Covid-19 vaccination program for booster shots are not being partially fund by the Federal Government. Organisations wishing to hold Covid-19 vaccination clinics at their workplace must fund the service (similar to a flu vaccination program).
In limited circumstances, coadministration of flu and Covid-19 vaccinations may be possible. Please let us know if this is something you are interested in, and AVS will phone to discuss whether it is possible based on your companies’ circumstances.
