Reminder from 15 August provider bulletin
Due to the reduced demand for AZ, the Taskforce will be withdrawing sites from CVAS and VCF for AZ if they have no pending AZ orders and:
- have no stock on hand i.e. reported 0 stock
- have never submitted a stock form for AZ.
If you fall into this category but do not wish to be withdrawn for AZ, e: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to limited supply of the monkeypox vaccine (JYNNEOS®) in Victoria, not everyone who meets the eligibility criteria will be able to access a vaccine. Patients requiring post-exposure prophylaxis will be prioritised. The vaccine is currently only available through select metropolitan sexual health clinics and regional local public health units. People who meet the eligibility criteria but are finding it difficult to access an appointment, can be referred to e: email@example.com
For the most up-to-date information and eligibility criteria, see the Victorian Department of Health’s webpage. Murray PHN has also created a webpage, available here. Members of the public who are enquiring about the vaccine, can be directed to the Better Health Channel webpage for more information. The Commonwealth has also developed a patient information leaflet.
