Pharmacies employing/engaging nurse immunisers 

DHHS advises pharmacies may employ or engage nurse immunisers who can act under the Nurse Immuniser Secretary Approval to provide immunisation services in the pharmacy or as part of an outreach or mobile vaccination service of the pharmacy or pharmacy depot. However, the nurse immuniser must be a registered nurse, and not an enrolled nurse, and must have completed an approved immunisation training course. The nurse immuniser also needs to have access to a medical practitioner for advice in accordance with the requirements of the Secretary Approval. Pharmacist immunisers cannot supervise nurses or other persons to immunise patients on their behalf.
