The Department of Health has engaged the PPA to coordinate the COVID-19 vaccine rollout EOI process, more information is available here.
The PPA is currently developing an online response form for completion by interested community pharmacies. A link to the online response form will be emailed to community pharmacies with an account on the PPA Portal on Friday 5 February 2021. The online response form will require pharmacies to:
- Provide information regarding their capability, including a response as to whether they meet, or will meet, the site readiness requirements provided at Attachment A
- Submit information regarding their capacity, including information such as opening hours, staffing levels and estimated number of vaccines able to be administered daily
- Provide a declaration in relation to the responses included in the EOI.
Community pharmacies without a PPA account should contact the Support Centre via firstname.lastname@example.org, to request a personalised response link.
The PPA will work collaboratively with the Department to consider each EOI and approve community pharmacies to participate in the delivery of COVID-19 vaccines. A notification regarding approval will be emailed to each community pharmacy that submits an EOI.
