Remote Prac­tice

Immu­ni­sa­tion Requirements

Across Aus­tralia, require­ments to be approved as a nurse or mid­wife immu­ni­sa­tion provider dif­fer vast­ly. Some states and ter­ri­to­ries require spe­cif­ic cours­es from spe­cif­ic providers (uni­ver­si­ty or health depart­ment based). Some require pre­scribed clin­i­cal immu­ni­sa­tion expe­ri­ence. Most juris­dic­tions accept a range of immu­ni­sa­tion cours­es and list these pub­licly, how­ev­er, there is diver­si­ty in the cours­es accepted.

Direct links to indi­vid­ual state and ter­ri­to­ry require­ments for autho­ri­sa­tion to immu­nise are pro­vid­ed here. The clar­i­ty and ease of use of the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed on each site varies. Be pre­pared to con­tact the state or ter­ri­to­ry health depart­ment direct­ly to dis­cuss your require­ments to ensure you make a train­ing choice that meets your needs.

Note that South Aus­tralia Health’s Under­stand­ing Vac­cines and the Nation­al Immu­ni­sa­tion Pro­gram is cur­rent­ly the most broad­ly, non-uni­ver­si­ty course recog­nised. It is accept­ed in SA, NT WA, Vic and NSW. Require­ments are sub­ject to change and you are strong­ly encour­aged to con­firm that any course you plan to under­take will meet the state or ter­ri­to­ry require­ments where you intend to work.
