Residential Aged Care COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic - Registration Form

Closes 31 May 2022

Opened 28 Mar 2022

Overview

Residential Aged Care Facilities that are unable to secure a primary care provider to administer COVID-19 Winter Vaccine doses, either with a GP or pharmacist or through their Primary Health Network, will be able to request an in-reach Commonwealth COVID-19 Winter Dose Vaccination clinic.

To be eligible for a Commonwealth COVID-19 Winter Dose clinic:

  • a facility will need to have 10% or more of their resident population requiring a COVID-19 vaccination and this equates to at least 10 residents in total.
  • the minimum 10% of residents requiring a vaccination can include those requiring a winter dose as well as a first, second or booster dose a COVID-19 vaccine. Doses can also be administered to staff if required.

If a facility does not meet the above threshold and is unable to access any alternate means to deliver COVID-19 Winter dose vaccinations, the facility can register interest for a Commonwealth in-reach COVID-19 Winter dose clinic.

Please note that the Commonwealth clinics will only deliver COVID-19 vaccines. Your facility will be required to make separate arrangements for administration of flu vaccines unless:

  • you have a contracted commercial provider to administer your annual flu vaccinations, and this provider is also contracted by the Commonwealth to deliver in-reach COVID-19 Winter dose clinics in your area;
  • this provider agrees at your direct request to administer both vaccine programs at the same time. You will be required to organise the flu vaccination component directly with that provider.

If you have any questions about this registration form, you can send your questions to RACFVaccineClinics@Health.gov.au.
