The Commonwealth Department of Health has recently established a team dedicated to supporting the transfer of vaccines and reduce the amount of wastage.
Practices with excess stock (10 vials or more of Pfizer, 20 vials or more of AstraZeneca) should contact VOC via phone 1800 318 208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Practice ID #
Practice Opening Hours
Excess Vaccine type
Number if vials
In the event that your doses have expired, please:
- Refer to the COVID-19 Vaccination Training which provides details on how to dispose of vaccines, and
- Remember to report wastage through the COVID-19 Vaccine Administrative System (CVAS):
- Wastage less than 5 vials should be reported in your Vaccine Stock Management Report; and
- Wastage of 5 vials and over should be reported within the Wastage Report
If you would like to reduce your minimum order for Pfizer to 60 per fortnight, please email email@example.com and we can submit that request to the Department of Health.
