COVID-19 vaccination program for homebound vulnerable people

COVID-19 vaccination program for homebound vulnerable people

11 October, 2021

Do you have the capacity NOW to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to vulnerable people who are housebound on a sessional basis and hourly rate?

The Australian Government is providing Primary Health Networks with flexible funding support for innovative, local, short-term activities to speed up the vaccination of vulnerable populations identified as having difficulty accessing COVID-19 vaccinations.

People who cannot leave home and are frail, elderly, unwell or have disability have been identified as a particularly vulnerable group. Access to vaccines is currently limited for these people.

North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN), Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (EMPHN) and South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) have partnered to facilitate access to in-home COVID-19 vaccinations for homebound people who cannot access a home visit and vaccination through their regular GP.

This is a short-term, targeted activity, that will operate from October to December 2021 (although some second dose vaccinations may be administered in early to mid-January).

Please visit eprocure for more information on this project, eligibility criteria and remuneration, and to apply.

Applications are open now and close at 10:00am AEDT on Monday 18 October 2021.

To receive notification and tender information, you must be registered on EMPHN’s eProcure portal. Registration is free.

If you have used eProcure in the past, please ensure your organisation has a current contact person registered.
