GuildLink supports expanded access to influenza vaccination for children aged 10 years and over through Western Australia community pharmacies

20 June 2019

Overnight, GuildLink has released system enhancements to the GuildCare vaccination recording service to support the Western Australian Department of Health’s decision to allow trained pharmacists to administer influenza vaccination to patients aged 10 years and over. 

Throughout this years’ record flu season, leading pharmacy professional services platform provider GuildLink has worked closely with States and Territories to enact changes in the platform that have supported the expanded range of pharmacist administered vaccination. This has enabled pharmacists in ACT, QLD, Tasmania and WA to act quickly to deliver flu vaccination services to a greater number of people in their communities.

Vaccination is key to helping prevent the spread of the flu in the community and over the last four years, GuildLink has lead the industry and worked alongside pharmacists in supporting the key professional role of pharmacists as vaccinators.

GuildCare was the first professional services platform to directly integrate with the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR), allowing pharmacists to both meet vaccination recording requirements and save time entering vaccination information. AIR integration removes double handling of patient data, providing a more accurate and efficient system of recording vaccinations.

GuildCare is proud to be at the forefront of supporting pharmacists to practice to their full scope and thereby to put their patients and their communities first.
