COVID-19 Vaccination Training Program ending as of 1 October 2023

From 1 October 2023, the Department of Health and Aged Care will no longer be producing new COVID-19 Vaccine Training Modules and the COVID-19 Vaccination Training Program (CVTP) will come to a close. CVTP training will no longer be mandatory for participation in the COVID-19 Vaccine Program.
Please note: CVTP completion will remain a mandatory requirement up to and including Saturday 30 September 2023. Module completion and certificate downloads will still be required during this period. However, from 1 October 2023, COVID-19 certificates of completion will no longer be issued.
COVID-19 reference resources, such as the COVID-19 Vaccines in Australia and ATAGI Recommended COVID-19 Vaccines Doses posters, will continue to be updated and available. For continued access to learning resources for COVID-19 vaccines, visit COVID-19 vaccination training program | Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care
All primary care sites participating in the COVID-19 Vaccine Program must continue to either:
  • hold a valid accreditation (or be undergoing accreditation) through the National General Practice Accreditation Scheme, or
  • administer vaccines as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP).
Further information will be communicated to all CVTP learners and participating primary care sites.
Should you have any clinical questions regarding COVID-19 vaccine administrations, the Vaccine Operations Centre will remain available on 1800 318 208 or at COVID19VaccineOperationsCentre@Health.gov.au

Vaccine update: Pfizer 12 years+ (purple) expiry and offboarding - 27 June 2023

All Pfizer 12 years+(purple) vaccine doses will expire on 30 June 2023

Next steps for practices: 

  • Check your fridges on 1 July 2023 to report any wastage in CVAS.  

  • Dispose of vaccines as per existing state and territory guidelines for the disposal of clinical waste and schedule 4 medication.  

  • If there is a wastage event of 10 or more vials, a Major Wastage Report will need to be completed in CVAS as soon as possible. If there are less than 10 vials, the reporting should be completed in the minor wastage section in the weekly Vaccine Stock Management Report which is due before 9pm on Friday that week

Once your site’s stock on hand in CVAS shows zero for Pfizer 12 years+(purple) and all reporting has been completed in CVAS for this vaccine product, it will be deactivated on your behalf, unless you have already requested deactivation. 

Please note: Pfizer BA. 4-5 (grey) and Moderna BA. 4-5 pre-filled syringes vaccines continue to be available if you need access to a primary course vaccine for people 12 years and over. 

2023 COVID-19 booster advice and access – 8 February 2023

ATAGI has released advice on the use of an additional booster dose for adults.  The Australian Government has accepted the advice and announced that the additional booster dose will be available to eligible people from 20 February 2023.

ATAGI’s advice is as follows:

  • ATAGI recommends a 2023 COVID-19 vaccine booster dose for adults in the following groups, if their last COVID-19 vaccine dose or confirmed infection (whichever is the most recent) was 6 months ago or longer, and regardless of the number of prior doses received: 
    • All adults aged 65 years and over
    • Adults aged 18-64 years who have medical comorbidities that increase their risk of severe COVID-19, or disability with significant or complex health needs.
  • ATAGI advises the following groups should consider a 2023 booster dose if their last COVID-19 vaccine dose or confirmed infection (whichever is the most recent) was 6 months ago or longer, and regardless of the number of prior doses received, based on an individual risk benefit assessment with their immunisation provider:
    • All Adults aged 18-64 years without risk factors for severe COVID-19
    • Children and adolescents aged 5-17 years who have medical comorbidities that increase their risk of severe COVID-19, or disability with significant or complex health needs.
  • ATAGI advises that a booster dose is not recommended at this time for children and adolescents aged under the age of 18 who do not have any risk factors for severe COVID-19.
Summary ATAGI 2023 Booster Advice
 Age At risk No risk factors
<5 years Not recommended Not recommended
5-17 years Consider Not recommended
18-64 years Recommended Consider
≥ 65 years Recommended Recommended
As per ATAGI advice:
  • Administration of 2023 booster doses should aim to occur prior to June 2023 
  • All currently available COVID-19 vaccines are anticipated to provide benefit as a booster dose, however bivalent mRNA booster vaccines are preferred over other vaccines - for ages in which a bivalent vaccine is not approved, use a vaccine approved for that age group.

Read ATAGI's full recommendations and rationale

In light of this announcement general practices participating in the program will have their allocation  will have their allocation of Pfizer bivalent (grey) allocations increased from 240 to 600 doses per fortnight, noting that you can order less that the maximum allowance.

See the RACGP's MBS updates webpage for more information on recent changes to COVID-19 vaccine items numbers which came into effect on 1 February 2023.  

Inclusion of the Pfizer bivalent (Original/Omicron BA.4/5) vaccine in the Australian COVID-19 Vaccination Program – 8 February 2023

Following provisional approval by the TGA on 20 January 2023, ATAGI has released recommendations on the use of the Pfizer (Comirnaty) Bivalent Original/Omicron BA.4/5 vaccine (subsequently referred to as Pfizer bivalent BA.4/5) as a booster dose in people aged 12 years and older.

The recommendation includes that adolescents and adults aged 12 years or older who are recommended to receive a COVID-19 booster according to the ATAGI 2023 booster advice, can receive the Pfizer bivalent BA.4/5 vaccine for that dose.

The Pfizer bivalent BA.4/5 vaccine is not currently registered for use in children aged <12 years or as a primary series.

The Australian Government will include the Pfizer bivalent BA.4/5 vaccine in the COVID-19 Vaccination Program from 6 March 2023 and will be made available to all general practices participating in the program who wish to administer the vaccine.

New patient resource: How can I get proof of my COVID-19 vaccinations?

Most Australian residents will be able to get proof of vaccination against COVID-19 themselves, without assistance from their GP or practice staff. However, time-poor practices have recently seen an influx of patients requesting their assistance.

In response, the RACGP has developed ‘How can I get proof of my COVID-19 vaccinations?’, a printable patient information sheet explaining how proof of vaccination can be acquired, depending on the patient’s situation.

The information sheet contains guidance for those who:

  • have a Medicare online account
  • have a Medicare card number, but not a Medicare online account
  • are not eligible for Medicare
  • do not have access to the internet or a smartphone
  • are seeking proof of vaccination on behalf of their child.

Access the information sheet 


Supporting COVID-19 vaccination uptake in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 12 and over eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine and are an identified priority population.  

To ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and their families are safe when lockdowns ends, increasing vaccination rates in these communities is critical. 

You can help increase vaccination rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by: 

  • ensuring your practice provides an opportunity for patients to identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and have their response recorded in your clinical information systems 

  • running a search of your practice records for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and checking their vaccination status via the Australian Immunisation Register or My Health Record 

  • contacting all eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients and offering priority vaccination to ensure they are safe when lockdown ends 

  • If they say yes, book them in (if your practice is vaccinating) or let them know local vaccination centres and how to book 

  • If they say no, invite them in to discuss the vaccine. 

  • offering vaccination when patients attend for other reasons. 

The DoH has developed new materials to support you in communicating COVID-19 vaccine information with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients, including: 

  • talking points to assist you in having conversations about COVID-19 vaccines  
  • guidance on TGA advertising restrictions, explaining how you can inform your patients about what vaccines are available in your clinic via social mediaposters and your practice website 
  • video animation explaining what to expect on the day of vaccination, possible side effects and the need for two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine 
  • videos with Indigenous community leaders and testimonials by real people 

You can find these and other resources on the DoH website.  

An opinion piece authored by Professor Kidd “What to do if you, or a family member, tests positive for COVID-19” has been translated into five Indigenous languages and is now available on the DoH website.


You can support the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients by:  

  • ensuring your practice is welcoming and inclusive (see Step 1: Providing effective, culturally safe healthcare on the NACCHO/RACGP Resource Hub for advice) 
  • encouraging all practice staff to do cultural awareness training (offered free of charge to RACGP members and for a nominal fee for other practice staff via gplearning).     


Other resources include:

Vaccine information for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities 

The Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine website has information available in 63 languages. To access information in a language other than English, select ‘Information in your language’ within the blue header.

The DoH has published an updated stakeholder pack to support you to communicate and share COVID-19 vaccine information with culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Topics covered in the pack include: 

  • COVID-19 health and safety tips
  • rapid antigen tests (RATs)
  • testing positive for COVID-19
  • oral treatments for COVID-19.
The pack includes links to access translated videos, audio files, social media tiles and posters.

In-language COVID-19 vaccine information kits have been developed and include resources with key information on COVID-19 vaccines, including:

  • updates to the vaccine rollout
  • booster doses and third doses for immunocompromised people
  • information on pregnancy and COVID-19 vaccines
  • videos featuring community members explaining the importance of getting vaccinated
  • videos featuring doctors answering questions about COVID-19 vaccines.
These kits are available in Arabic, Assyrian, ChaldeanSimplified Chinese and Dinka

National Coronavirus Helpline: In-language assistance

Culturally and linguistically diverse patients can now access in-language information on COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination and book a vaccination appointment through the National Coronavirus Helpline.

The service is supported by Translating and Interpreting Services (TIS) National, whose interpreters speak 150 languages. In-language resources can be sent to callers after the call.

To access this service, people can call the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 020 080 and select option 8 for interpreter services. 

Booking onsite interpreters

You can book onsite interpreters on weekends for COVID-19 vaccination purposes by emailing tis.freeinterpreting@homeaffairs.gov.au.

Vaccine access for Medicare-ineligible patients

If patients are not eligible for Medicare, providers can still supply COVID vaccines to these patients, but cannot bill for this service (Medicare or otherwise). 

Medicare ineligible people can receive the vaccine from any Commonwealth Vaccination Clinic or a state/territory vaccination hub.


Recording vaccination details in the Australian Immunisation Register for Medicare-ineligible patients

The Victorian Refugee Health Network, together with EACH, has developed a step-by-step guide to help you manually upload vaccine details to the Australian Immunisation Register for patients who are not eligible for Medicare.

Doing this will enable Medicare-ineligible people to access their proof-of-vaccination certificate.

Mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations

State and territory Public Health Orders are in place mandating COVID-19 vaccination for healthcare workers, some of which include and some of which exclude GPs. Please check the local requirements in your area:

If team members are affected by these orders and refuse to be vaccinated, they are not legally allowed to work at the premise and may be terminated. Each public health order outlines the process for exemptions.

Vaccinations for general practice

The RACGP considers that vaccination of healthcare workers supports the medical profession’s duty of care and builds vaccine confidence in the community. While not mandatory for general practice in all jurisdictions, the RACGP strongly encourages all GPs and members of the practice team to be vaccinated against COVID-19, for their own protection and the protection of their patients.  

If you, or your practice wishes to implement vaccination requirements for team members and you are in a jurisdiction where it is not mandatory by public health order, you must do so with great consideration and within the workplace laws outlined by your state or territory. Due consideration must be taken as to the risk an unvaccinated staff member is to the practice, what their role involves, their contact with other team members and patients and their access to and willingness to wear appropriate PPE.

The RACGP’s Standards for General Practices (5th edition) provide guidance on staff vaccination, but do not delve into legal requirements. Practices should seek individual legal advice from their MDO.

Avant and Safe Work Australia provide useful information regarding situations where staff refuse vaccination, however, both of these webpages reiterate that these situations are often intricate, and that legal advice is always recommended.

The RACGP recommends regularly updating practice staff immunisation policies to ensure any new recruits are aware of vaccination obligations and expectations during the recruitment process.


COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for certain designated workers in some jurisdictions. Unvaccinated persons without a valid medical exemption may also have their access restricted to certain settings ie hospitality, large public gatherings. Each public health order outlines who may be exempt from the order and what documentation is required as evidence.

Under most public health orders mandating vaccination, exemption is strictly limited to people with a medical contraindication (see the ATAGI clinical guidance) to all available COVID-19 vaccines. Temporary exemptions may be warranted:

  • inflammatory cardiac illness within the past 3 months for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines
  • due to an acute major medical condition (eg undergoing major surgery or hospital admission for a serious illness)
  • until complete recovery from COVID-19 illness (vaccination can be deferred up to four months following illness) 
  • due to a serious adverse event attributed to a previous dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and without another cause identified
  • if the vaccine recipient is a risk to themselves or others during the vaccination process.

GPs are authorised to record a patient’s permanent or temporary vaccination exemption to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) using the Immunisation medical exemption form (IM011). The ATAGI expanded guidance on temporary medical exemptions for COVID-19 vaccines supports decision making and documentation for vaccine exemptions.

ATAGI continues to advise that previous infection is not a contraindication to vaccination​.

Discussion guide for medical exemptions

The Melbourne Vaccine Education Centre website now features a new discussion guide to support GPs when approached for a vaccine exemption. The guide has suggestions for managing potentially difficult conversations and de-escalating conflict, including useful scripts to guide your conversations. It also references the RACGP’s resource on preventing and managing patient aggression and violence.

Vaccination exemption documentation requirements 

In addition to registering a medical exemption to AIR using the Immunisation medical exemption form, each state and territory has different requirements for documenting vaccine exemptions for the purposes of adhering to public health orders (PHO).

State / Territory Documentation required for the purposes of the PHO
Australian Capital Territory Completion of the ACT COVID-19 vaccine medical contraindication or temporary exemption form*

Can I, or my practice, refuse face-to-face consultations for unvaccinated individuals?

The RACGP has always believed in GP and general practice autonomy. Individuals and practices must prioritise protecting GPs and practice staff from COVID-19.

If you or your practice were to implement such a requirement, you must be mindful that you are subject to regulatory requirements such as the Medical Board’s code of conduct and may be inadvertently unlawfully discriminating against some patients.  This may make you subject to compliance investigations and/or professional conduct complaints or complaints to the Human Right Commission or equivalent state bodies. This is particularly relevant where a person cannot be vaccinated due to a medical condition, their age (i.e. children under 12 are currently not eligible), or their religious beliefs. As per Ahpra and the National Board's guidance on facilitating access to care in a COVID-19 environment, all health practitioners are expected to facilitate access to care regardless of someone’s vaccination status.

If you or your practice decide to require patients be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend face-to-face consultations that decision should be made in the context of your individual practice. That includes the health status of clinicians (and self), the needs of the local population, alternate access points to receive primary health care in your area, stocks of personal protective equipment, whether the patient is presenting with or without respiratory symptoms, what continuity of care needs the patient has and what the current outbreak setting is in your location.

In the absence of a Public Health Order mandating vaccination before obtaining a health service, the RACGP urges GPs and practices to tread extremely carefully and consider whether other measures such as robust infection control processes, as well as considering whether a telehealth consultation is an appropriate alternative.

Continuing to provide services to these patients may provide you with ongoing opportunities to discuss vaccination with these patients. We believe that many patients who are hesitant may decide to have the vaccine after they have had a discussion with their GP who is a trusted source of information.

This is an emerging field in law and in the first instance the RACGP recommends that if you or your practice are wishing to pursue this avenue, you should have a conversation with your Medical Defence Organisation to discuss your, and your practices, individual circumstances. 

Read Ahpra and the National Board's guidance on facilitating access to care in a COVID-19 environment

People who have received an approved or recognised COVID-19 vaccine while overseas can have their vaccinations recorded in the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) by an approved vaccination provider once they return to Australia.

Vaccination documentation must be provided in English (original or translated) and the person must be present during the consultation (either in person or via telehealth if eligible) to confirm the information provided.

You can request extra supporting information if you receive insufficient information or suspect fraudulent evidence has been provided. You are not required to report the vaccination to the AIR if you do not believe the evidence provided is sufficient.

You are encouraged to enter as much vaccine information as possible. You must report the:
  • brand name
  • dose number
  • date of administration
  • batch number
  • country of administration (for overseas-administered vaccines).
If you cannot confirm the batch number, you should enter ‘not recorded’ in that field. If you are unable to record the country of administration using your clinical information system (CIS), you can enter this information directly into the AIR website. Using the latest version of your clinical information system will help ensure reporting requirements are met.

COVID-19 Vaccine Claims Scheme

The no-fault COVID-19 indemnity scheme opened to potential claimants on 13 December 2021 and will be backdated to February 2021.

The scheme reimburses people who suffer a moderate-to-significant impact following an adverse events following an approved COVID-19 vaccine.

A key aim of the scheme is to reduce the risk of legal action against a healthcare practitioner involved in the vaccination rollout. The scheme does not prevent someone from taking action through the courts – it has been designed as a streamlined alternative to court proceedings.

A number of resources on the scheme are available on the DoH’s website:


Professional indemnity coverage through your MDO

Each of the major medical defence organisations has released information addressing professional indemnity coverage for members providing COVID-19 vaccinations. If you are insured by another provider, contact that company directly regarding your coverage.

In summary, if you hold a professional indemnity policy and your scope of practice includes prescribing or administering vaccines, you will be covered in a similar way to other vaccination programs in the event of an adverse reaction following vaccination.
