Reminder: NSW Health cold chain online learning module due by 31 July 2019

22 July 2019

At least one staff member must successfully complete the NSW Health Vaccine Storage and Cold Chain Management online learning module to continue to receive government-funded vaccines.

The module is to be completed by 31 July 2019, and a copy of the completion certificate must be kept on file as it may be requested by NSW Health.

It is strongly recommended that all the following people complete the online training module to ensure they understand the principles of vaccine storage:

  • persons involved with ordering vaccines
  • persons involved with receiving vaccines
  • persons involved with storing vaccines
  • persons involved with administering vaccines

In the event that both the primary person responsible for vaccine storage (and the back-up person) are away, all staff should be competent in vaccine management in the event of an emergency or power failure.
