Vaccine ordering and storage
Access to National and State funded vaccines requires approval from SA Health. To be approved to receive vaccines health professionals supply information through the registration process. Medical centres providing yellow fever vaccine in South Australia must also be approved by SA Health. For further information see the Vaccine ordering page.
Vaccines are fragile, biological substances that can become less effective or destroyed if exposed to temperatures outside the recommended storage range of between +2°C and +8°C. Health professionals responsible for the administration of vaccines must follow appropriate procedures and processes to ensure nationally recommended guidelines for vaccine storage are maintained. For more information see the Vaccine storage page.
