Clinic Setup Advice for COVID-19 Vaccine Service Providers

As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout begins, providers are carefully preparing their clinics for a steady influx when the vaccine is made available to the general public.

Need to upgrade or add to your medical furniture and equipment?

Federal Health Minister John Hunt said in a recent press conference that Australian health professionals “will soon be delivering well over 500,000 vaccinations per week.” There are some 4,500 General practices around the nation preparing to participate in the vaccination program set to accelerate significantly later this month.

With the expected rise of attendance comes greater consideration of hygiene, storage, staffing and social distancing measures within the practice.

Is Your Clinic COVID-19 Vaccine Ready?

The various State Health Departments have prepared procedures, guidelines and advice for providers to promote safe and efficient vaccination services. Some providers may need to consider moving vaccination services to larger spaced community venues, and where necessary, implement longer immunisation sessions.
