Welcome to the Immunisation Community of Practice. A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people with a shared passion who come together and learn how to do better. The PHNs Immunisation CoP is your opportunity to get answers, share ideas and build your professional network regarding immunisation.

The PHN Immunisation CoP aims to reduce the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases in the community by providing appropriate and timely information about vaccine preventable diseases and the Immunise Australia Program to immunisation providers and the community and promote the delivery of the National Immunisation Program (NIP).

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases that can cause serious health problems in the community. Immunisation not only protects individuals from life-threatening diseases, but also dramatically reduces transmission in the community. The more people who are vaccinated, the fewer opportunities a disease has to spread.

Some of the benefits of joining this Community are:

  • 24/7 access to filed Immunisation resources,
  • keep current with Immunisation updates,
  • brainstorm about Immunisation,
  • and network with colleagues passionate about Immunisation.

    Less than 35% of Australians have been vaccinated against influenza (flu), newly released data reported by NCIRS have shown.
    NSW Health have announced that free flu shots for NSW residents will be extended until 17 July amid concerns vaccination rates are still not where they should be.
    View the NCIRS website for more detailed influenza coverage data: https://www.ncirs.org.au/influenza-vaccination-coverage-data 

    The NSW Government will fund flu vaccinations for all NSW residents from 1 June 2022 to 17 July 2022 (previously 30 June) to boost immunity for the winter season. Free flu shots will be available at:

    • GP clinics for everyone aged 6 months and over
    • Pharmacies for everyone aged 5 years and over

    NSW Health media: Free flu shots for all in June
    NSW Health website: Influenza resources for health professionals

    The National Immunisation Program (NIP) funded vaccines should only be used for NIP eligible patients during the “NSW free flu vaccine in June/July” program
    Practices can obtain FluQuadri vaccine to vaccinate all NSW residents aged 5 years to 64 years under this program. Vaccines can be ordered from the State Vaccine Centre under Adult influenza vaccine state funded”.

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone else has had issues with MD. I have found that if I have opened more than 1 patient's notes , the immunisation history from 1 patient can go into another patient's notes . This has happened more than once. Now I only open 1 patient at a time, which isn't helpful during vaccination clinics
