COVID-19 cases in the region 

The number of reported COVID cases in our region has decreased and there are declines in hospital presentations, and residential aged care facility outbreaks. Infection control and wearing masks (staff and patients) is still critically important in primary care settings.

For further information on the latest number of COVID cases please go to the latest NSW COVID statistics. If you would like information and support on infection prevention and control for your practice, please email: 

CESPHN Vax at Home service

The CESPHN Vax at Home Service is for those people who are housebound and not able to leave their house to receive a COVID-19 vaccination or booster. The service will accept referrals for people 16 years and over. Referrals will be accepted from GPs and from Local Health Districts. Patient self-referrals will not be accepted.

All referrals must be sent through this Vax at Home Service Online Form. Please also indicate if an influenza vaccine is also required. Please note, a referral will need to be attached to the online form. For further information on the program, please contact us.  This service will continue to receive referrals over the Christmas shut down period. Please note if your referral is urgent service will prioritise accordingly and vaccinations arranged.

Pulse oximeters for your patients.

CESPHN is still providing pulse oximeters – please see details below:

  • Individual patients – we have access to a small supply of oximeters. GPs with patients they believe require a pulse oximeter urgently are asked to complete this CESPHN Pulse Oximeter online form with the patients details and we will arrange delivery of an oximeter

Update to COVID-19 Vaccination Administration System (CVAS)

Sites participating in the COVID-19 Vaccine Program can log into CVAS and directly request to activate, reactivate or deactivate access to one or more vaccine products.

  • Withdrawing from specific vaccines:

Before making a request to deactivate a vaccine type, sites will need to ensure they have completed a final Stock Management Report and recorded zero stock on hand for the vaccine type they are requesting to be deactivated for. Please note, a request does not guarantee a site will be activated for the requested vaccine type, approval of requests is at the discretion of the Department.

  • Withdrawing from the program completely:

If a site would like to withdraw completely from the program, they will need to log into CVAS to request withdrawal from all vaccine types and then contact their local PHN to fully withdraw from the program.

For your site to withdraw from the program practices must:

  • Have completed a final Stock Management Report and recorded zero stock on hand for all vaccine types they have on hand
  • Sites can remain deactivated in CVAS but retain access to the site in the event they would like to participate in the program in the future, also known as taking a break. They will not be required to complete any mandatory reporting during this time. This will enable the site to be able to participate in the Program again, should the need arise.
  • Log into the Vaccine Clinic Finder Connect and remove themselves as a vaccine provider from the Vaccine Clinic Finder

If sites are in need of assistance when requesting either option via CVAS, you can contact the Vaccine Operations Centre (VOC) on 1800 318 208.
