This Week’s Highlight: Opportunity for Vaccine Administrators

There’s no hiding the fact that COVID-19 vaccination roll out is at the top of government’s priority list as they work to ensure that as many Australians as possible are vaccinated as early as possible. With established pop-up vaccine clinics in high risk areas and a large number of doctors and pharmacists already vaccinating, government is looking to go one step further and is seeking to establish the National COVID Vaccine Administration Partners Program (VAAP).

The Program will enable access to COVID-19 Immunisation Providers (IProviders) by Commonwealth government entities and associated agencies and enterprises to allow safe and timely COVID-19 vaccinations.

To be eligible to apply, an IProvider must:

  • have the capacity and capability to administer a minimum of 500 vaccines a week (unless the setting does not require it)
  • ensure that their workforce is authorised to administer vaccines in the nominated jurisdictions in accordance with all applicable laws;
  • ensure that their workforce has completed the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Vaccination Training Program prior to the administration of COVID-19 Vaccines.
  • A variety of legal entities including registered charities and Not-For-Profits are eligible to apply and responses allow tenderers to nominate the state/territory/region in which you have the capacity to administer vaccines.

    IProviders wishing to submit a Tender can do so until 3 December 2021, noting that submissions will close in a phased approach wit the RFT being re-released at each phase. This phased approach allows IProviders who may not be in a position to commence offering vaccinations immediately (for example those who have existing commitments to organisations) to have the opportunity to do so at a later date.

    PHASE 1: FRIDAY, 24 SEPTEMBER 2021 – 2.00pm (local time in Canberra, ACT)

    PHASE 2: FRIDAY, 12 NOVEMBER 2021 – 2.00pm (local time in Canberra, ACT)

    PHASE 3: FRIDAY, 3 December 2021 – 2.00pm (local time in Canberra, ACT)

    Note that responses are not being lodged on Austender, but are to be emailed to COVID-VAPP@health.gov.au.
