Aspen Medical to supplement workforce for COVID-19 vaccine rollout

Health Industry Hub | January 25, 2021 |

Pharma News: The Australian Government has appointed Aspen Medical to the panel that will be called upon to provide a vaccine workforce to supplement the existing immunisation workforce.

Australia’s vaccine roll out will be carried out through hospitals, General practices, state and Commonwealth vaccination clinics, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations and Pharmacies.

Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Hon Greg Hunt MP said “Through our plan, a panel of four providers have been appointed who will be called upon to provide a vaccine workforce to supplement the existing immunisation workforce for specific populations. The providers are Aspen Medical, Healthcare Australia, International SOS, and Sonic Clinical Services.”

The Australian Government has been closely monitoring the immunisation programs operating overseas, including in the United Kingdom and the United States, and one of the critical requirements has been the availability of a ready and capable immunisation workforce.

The Hon Greg Hunt MP said, “This vaccine workforce will support the jurisdictions for their part in the vaccine rollout. We anticipate they will also partner with peak organisations and other providers to assist in administering the vaccine for harder-to-reach populations, such as remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.”

Internationally, Aspen Medical has been contracted to roll out COVID-19 vaccinations in the USA and the United Arab
