Vulnerable People Vaccination Program

Interconnect Healthcare is pleased to partner with the Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (EMPHN) in supporting vulnerable community members in the Monash local government area.

The Vulnerable People Vaccination Program is an Australian Government funded initiative, supporting vulnerable populations to access the COVID-19 vaccine.

Eligibility

People eligible for an in-reach vaccination service include but are not limited to:

  • those who are experiencing homelessness, including those living on the streets, in emergency accommodation, boarding houses or between temporary shelters;

  • those who do not have a Medicare card or are not eligible for Medicare;

  • people with a disability or who are frail and cannot leave home (homebound individuals);

  • people in rural and remote areas with limited healthcare options, including those who cannot travel to a regional centre;

  • First Nations Peoples;

  • people living in and remote communities;

  • culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse people, especially asylum seekers and refugees and those in older age groups who may find it difficult to use other vaccination services;

  • children aged 5-11 who have complex needs, who are not captured by another suitable vaccination channel, and

  • any other vulnerable groups identified as requiring dedicated support to access vaccinations.
