Thank you for choosing to be involved in your workplace’s Influenza Vaccine Program.
This year the administration side of the program a little differently than it has previously; we are asking all employees to read and complete forms electronically.
In 2020 we identified that there were a number of people who had to contact our practice for evidence of their vaccination so that they could visit Aged Care Facilities. Given that the community will need to provide documentation this year and the introduction of the COVID vaccine it is important that we ensure your vaccine is uploaded electronically to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). You will be then able to access your vaccination history via Medicare Online.
To assist us in ensuring that this data in uploaded we ask that when completing your personal details for this year that you include your Medicare Card details. We will not be billing Medicare for any services but this number identifies you when we securely upload the encrypted data via our medical software.
Our practice has been selected as a COVID vaccine provider, however at this stage we will not be provided this service at workplaces. We will be able to offer you and your colleagues the COVID vaccine in our practice when you are eligible and at a time convenient to you. More information about this will be provided on the day we visit your workplace.
