Back in the day, you were registered in one state. Great. You would have been tested on that state’s laws as well as the overarching Commonwealth laws.
Then in 2010 we all became nationally registered overnight. Which made things a little bit confusing.
Then each state passed their own laws to allow pharmacists to immunise – which lead us to the situation we’re in now. If you’re in the ACT you can administer influenza AND whooping cough vaccines, but cross the border into NSW and it’s influenza only.
So what vaccines can you administer in each state and what are the requirements for being a pharmacist immuniser?
