The NIPVIP Program increases patient access and affordability of vaccinations to help protect our community from vaccine-preventable diseases.

From Monday 29 April 2024, the NIPVIP Program will be expanded to allow pharmacies to claim a payment for the off-site administration of National Immunisation Program (NIP) vaccinations in residential aged care and disability homes. In addition, NIPVIP payments will be indexed from 1 July 2024.

The Program Rules are currently being updated to include information on the expansion of the NIPVIP Program and will be published shortly. Pharmacists are encouraged to regularly visit this page for further advice on the program expansion. An update will be sent to s90 pharmacies who have PPA Portal Service Provider accounts when the updated Program Rules become available.
