Registered health practitioners and students and COVID-19 vaccination

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) has released a position statement for practitioners and students encouraging registered health practitioners and students (particularly those undertaking placements in various practice settings) to have the full COVID-19 vaccination course as scheduled unless medically contraindicated.

Vaccination is a crucial part of the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many registered health practitioners will have a vital role in COVID-19 vaccination programs and in educating the public about the importance and safety of COVID-19 vaccines to ensure high participation rates.
