Authorised Vaccinators

Authorised vaccinators are able to administer vaccines without a prescription or standing order from a medical professional.

Only vaccines that are part of an approved immunisation programme can be given (e.g. The Ministry of Health national immunisation schedule or a local immunisation programme) (Immunisation Handbook 2014)

Only Registered Nurse or Midwives are eligible to apply.

Medical Officers of Health of the Tairāwhiti region are responsible for approving authorised vaccinator applications for this area covered by the 1984 clause 44A (2) Medicines Regulations Act. The period of authorisation is for two years, then you are required to reapply for authorisation renewal to continue to vaccinate.
