Pharmacists on track for NIP access in two more states from next year

If the changes are adopted, it will mean only pharmacists in NT, SA and Queensland will not be administering vaccines under the national immunisation program

Health ministers in NSW and Tasmania say they will give pharmacists access to flu vaccines under the National Immunisation Program, possibly from next year.

If the changes pan out, it means pharmacists will have access to NIP-funded vaccines to varying extents in all states and territories except the NT, SA and Queensland.
