Immunisation Update

Strive for 5

The National Vaccine Storage Guidelines Strive for 5 3rd edition is now available.

‘Strive for 5’ refers to 5 degrees Celsius (°C) – the midway point between +2°C and +8°C which is the temperature range recommended for vaccine storage. Many vaccines are damaged or destroyed at temperatures outside this range.

This resource provides up-to-date information about safe vaccine storage and key recommendations for effective vaccine storage management, including new supporting resources for immunisation providers.

Hard copies of the Strive for 5 booklet and supporting resources are currently being mailed to immunisation providers. Additional copies will be available for download or order at www.health.gov.au/immunisation after 19 July 2019.

PRODA Update

On 1 July 2019, the Department of Human Services began the transition from authentication file to Provider Digital Access (PRODA) in order to access the Australian Immunisation Register site via Health Professional Online Services.
