Immunisations/​vaccinations programs

Across Aus­tralia, require­ments to be approved as a nurse or mid­wife immu­ni­sa­tion provider dif­fer vast­ly. Some states and ter­ri­to­ries require spe­cif­ic cours­es from spe­cif­ic uni­ver­si­ty or health depart­ment based providers. Some require pre­scribed clin­i­cal immu­ni­sa­tion expe­ri­ence. How­ev­er, most juris­dic­tions accept a range of immu­ni­sa­tion cours­es and list these publicly.

Health Edu­ca­tion Ser­vices Aus­tralia (HESA) is cur­rent­ly accred­it­ing immu­ni­sa­tion cours­es. Accred­it­ed cours­es are trans­fer­able nation­al­ly. Direct links to indi­vid­ual state and ter­ri­to­ry require­ments for autho­ri­sa­tion to immu­nise are pro­vid­ed on the HESA web­site. If you have ques­tions about your spe­cif­ic require­ments, it is essen­tial to con­tact the state or ter­ri­to­ry health depart­ment direct­ly to dis­cuss your require­ments to ensure you make a train­ing choice that meets your needs.

For up-to-date accred­it­ed course infor­ma­tion, vis­it the HESA site.

For infor­ma­tion about the cours­es accept­ed in the var­i­ous states and ter­ri­to­ries, you can click through to the infor­ma­tion rel­e­vant to indi­vid­ual states and ter­ri­to­ries from our resources page under the Immu­nis­er Require­ments sec­tion.
