Authorised immuniser program

Regulations under the Tasmanian Poisons Act 1971 allow registered nurses and pharmaceutical chemists who have met certain educational requirements, to administer vaccines independently of a medical practitioner.

These guidelines have been developed to provide guidance to organisations that provide or intend to provide nurse vaccination programs in Tasmania that employ authorised immunisers.
