GP EOI to administer COVID vaccine

We acknowledge the fantastic response from practices in the area wanting to participate in the COVID vaccination program. The Australian Government Department of Health is reviewing the EOIs together with CESPHN’s local analysis. The Department is also undertaking vaccine logistics planning regarding vaccine supply and they will soon advise on the next steps for how practices can participate in the vaccination program.

Following this advice the PHN will be actively working with practices to support their involvement in the program.

Pharmacy EOI to administer COVID vaccine

An EOI process for community pharmacies to participate in the delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine from Phase 2a is now open. The EOI process is being administered by the Pharmacy Programs Administrator (PPA). For more information on this process see here. Community pharmacies with an account on the PPA Portal should have received an email with a link to the online form on 5 February 2021. The EOI closes on 19 February 2021.
