Processing of new account applications by the Immunisation Program may take up to four weeks during peak periods of the year. Applications that have not been completed correctly when submitted take a longer period.
Before submitting an order for government-supplied vaccines, you need to apply for an account number with the Department of Health.
To apply for an account number, all providers should submit a copy of the Application for a government-funded vaccine account which is available to download from this this page. Complete the details as instructed and return the form to the department's Immunisation Section.
Pharmacist/pharmacy applicants are also required to complete the Australian Immunisation Register Application to register as a vaccination provider form.
To be eligible to receive an account your application must include either:
- your Australian Immunisation Register provider number
- your application to register as a vaccination provider on the Australian Immunisation Register.
