Phase 1B COVID-19 vaccine rollout

Vaccination information for health care workers

The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in Queensland commenced on 21 February 2021. The COVID-19 vaccine Queensland rollout strategy details the priority vaccination of Queensland health care workers in Phase 1A and future phases.

Prior to receiving their COVID-19 vaccination, Queensland’s health care workers will be required to complete Pre-Vaccination Screening Questions.

Information for COVID-19 vaccination providers

  • Consent information
    As with all other vaccines, informed consent is required before administering each COVID-19 vaccine dose. In most cases, consent can be verbal. Written consent is not mandatory but may be required in some circumstances. Consent forms in English and multiple languages other than English are available below.
  • Adverse effects following vaccination (AEFI)
    Identifying an AEFI, or potential AEFI, is at the discretion of each individual clinician exercising clinical judgement. Reports of adverse events following immunisation (AEFI) are valuable and will help build a detailed safety profile of the vaccine.

Resources

COVID-19 Vaccination Preparation Pack

Brisbane South PHN has developed a Vaccination Preparation Pack to assist general practitioners, practice nurses and practice managers to deliver a successful mass vaccination program.

The pack comprises four parts. It supports the COVID-19 vaccine rollout and can be used for other vaccination events, e.g. influenza. The pack builds a complete picture of vaccine readiness in your practice and contains checklists that can be used as evidence for accreditation and QI activities.

Part 3:
Identifying eligible patients and planning the patient vaccination journey – Coming soon

Part 4:
Preparing and implementing a vaccination clinic – Coming soon

COVID-19 vaccination training

COVID-19 vaccination training is mandatory for all authorised vaccination providers. The non-clinical modules of the training such as handling, storage and administration are available to non-clinical and administrative staff.
