GuildCare NG – Vaccination changes

What’s new – Vaccination updates for New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia

GuildLink has released an update to GuildCare NG’s vaccination recording service inline with recent changes to the New South Wales, Queensland and South Australian Government’s vaccination policies.

Trained pharmacists in Queensland will now be able to administer cholera**; diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (dTpa); diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and inactivated poliovirus vaccine (dTpa-IPV); Haemophilus influenzae type B; hepatitis A; meningococcal ACWY; poliomyelitis; and measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccines to people aged 16 years and above.

Also included in the Queensland vaccination policy change in preparation for the upcoming influenza season was an amendment allowing trained pharmacists in Queensland to administer influenza vaccinations to people aged 10 years and above.

This same influenza vaccination age change has been implemented within GuildCare NG for trained pharmacists in New South Wales and South Australia, following recent changes in state vaccination policy. 

Together these changes in vaccination policies and in GuildCare NG will allow trained pharmacists to provide their patients with further access to vaccine-preventable diseases and increased healthcare support. 

** Current vaccination changes in GuildCare NG do not include oral cholera vaccinations. These will be made available in GuildCare NG shortly.
