Accessing government funded program vaccines
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. To ensure the appropriate information is easily accessible, a checklist (PDF 321KB) has been developed to assist you.
Once the information is assessed and approval is granted an email is sent to the new immunisation provider with information on the fortnightly delivery schedule, the online Vaccine Ordering System User Guide, and how to access the system. Access will require a Vaccine Account Number (VAN) which will be supplied in the same email.
Once you have received your Vaccine Account Number you can access the vaccine ordering system using the Funded Vaccines Order here button below. The Recommended Vaccine Stock Levels Fact Sheet (PDF 730KB) provides advice on determining how many vaccines to order each fortnight, to minimise the risk of over or under-ordering.
Hint: Save the Login page to your Favourites/Bookmarks for easy access.
