Primary care vaccination providers are encouraged, where possible, to conduct in-reach COVID-19 vaccination clinics to support access to vaccinations for aged care and disability support workers and residents.
Practice Incentives Program (PIP) payments can be claimed for vaccinations delivered through in-reach clinics until 31 December 2022.
Primary care vaccination providers in the NWMPHN region are reminded that they must engage with NWMPHN before and immediately after any in-reach clinic to report:
- the planned date of in-reach vaccination clinic
- confirmation the clinic was delivered
- the number of workers and residents vaccinated.
For each in-reach clinic conducted in a facility the primary care provider is required to complete an In-reach Clinic Summary Report, which must be signed by a representative of the facility. Please refer to the In-reach Clinic Summary Report template (.docx) for more information. To return a report or for any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
General practices and Commonwealth Vaccination Clinics must also report through the COVID-19 Vaccine Administrative System (CVAS) on the In-reach Vaccination Reporting page.
Refer to the Australian Government’s fact sheet (.pdf) and the PIP COVID-19 in-reach vaccination payment guidelines for more information.
