In preparation for Australia’s vaccine rollout, authorised immunisation providers must complete COVID-19 vaccination training to ensure competency standards are met to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
The Australian Government has partnered with the Australian College of Nursing to develop and deliver free and accredited training modules for individuals involved in the administration of COVID-19 vaccines. Training will be available from the end of January.
Training will also be available for non-clinical and administration staff, who will be able to access the non-clinical modules of the training such as handling, storage and administrative reporting.
