Segment 1

COVID vaccines: Record, recall, report 


The speed at which the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is being implemented means it’s natural for nurses to be left with a few unanswered questions. But fear not, APNA’s got you covered. We have been in active discussions with the Department of Health for many months now and are bringing you the information we learn via The Connect, in our COVID webinar series and on Nursing Australia.

Our most recent APNA COVID Webinar covered all you need to know about recording COVID-19 vaccinations in the AIR and reporting side-effects. We discussed the information you need to provide, what this looks like in your practice software, as well as some of the broader considerations for COVID-19 vaccination reporting.

We were joined by Katrina Otto and Marg Windsor.
