Page last updated: 12:30pm, 13 October 2023
How to stay up to date
COVID-19 vaccine providers and administrators should visit:
- the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care’s Advice for COVID-19 vaccine providers and administrators
- the Australian Immunisation Handbook: COVID-19.
We recommend also subscribing to:
- the Australian Government’s COVID-19 vaccines newsletter
- North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) general practice updates.
NWMPHN’s primary roles in the COVID-19 vaccine administration process are supporting general practices to become COVID-19 vaccine providers, and keeping primary care teams informed of changes to the COVID-19 vaccine program.
In-reach vaccination service
NWMPHN is accepting referrals from health care agencies and providers, general practices, and health communities within its catchment for in-reach home visits to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to people who cannot leave the home. This includes people in residential aged care homes as well as in community settings.
If you have a patient or know of someone in the community who cannot leave their home to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, please send a request for vaccination using our online form.
Basecamp for vaccine stock management
Practices are encouraged to post information on the NWMPHN Vaccine Requests Network Basecamp channel, advising of surplus stock, or the need for additional supplies.
This is only for general practices who are currently participating in the vaccine rollout, and who agree to meet the vaccine transfer guidelines established by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
If you wish to join our Basecamp channels, please email email@example.com
