  • The Chief Health Officer has recognised a number of programs of study as 'Nurse Immuniser programs of study' and 'Immuniser programs of study'.
  • Pharmacist Immunisers must complete an 'Immuniser program of study' that is available for completion by pharmacists.

The Chief Health Officer has recognised a number of 'Nurse Immuniser programs of study' and 'Immuniser programs of study' in Victoria.

Pharmacist Immunisers must complete an 'Immuniser program of study' that is available for completion by pharmacists. Pharmacists that have completed immunisation training in other jurisdictions are not authorised to administer vaccinations in Victoria. No interstate programs available to pharmacists have been recognised by the Victorian Chief Health Officer.

Recognised programs of study provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the role of an Immuniser in Victoria and assist them to develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to safely deliver an immunisation service.
