As part of the New Zealand COVID-19 response, it is essential that all immunisation services continue. This course aims to develop an immunisation workforce to support the MMR campaign, influenza 2021 and the COVID 19 vaccine programme. For these reasons, a pathway to provisional authorisation for vaccinators has been developed. The Provisional Vaccinator Foundation Course (PVFC) is the educational component of this pathway. To administer any COVID19 vaccine, all qualified/authorised and provisional vaccinators will need to produce evidence that they have completed the online COVID-19 specific education course.
