Safe, efficient & timely administration of vaccines where & when they are needed

We offer support for the development & implementation of immunisation programs

Respond Global can provide training and planning assistance, implementation management, and technical and logistical support to local healthcare teams who are supporting and delivering vaccine rollouts, including during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

We are approved as an immunisation provider in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.

We set minimum target requirements to ensure the safe, efficient, and timely administration of a vaccine whilst building robust capacity within local teams to develop an ongoing and sustainable immunisation program. This includes:

  • complete planning of immunisation service delivery to priority sites, workers, and populations
  • support for administering the COVID-19 vaccine
  • hierarchy and prioritisation design of vaccine administration
  • public health engagement and liaison
  • consideration for special and vulnerable populations
  • design and establishment of immunisation clinics, including management of clinics
  • logistical support – clinical waste management, cold chain management, procurement advice
  • development of risk communication plans at industry, national and international levels
  • record-keeping and submission of data to relevant health authorities
  • human resourcing – recruitment and training of required staff
  • infection prevention and control (IPC) – strict quality control, monitoring and evaluation
  • personal protective equipment (PPE) – setting minimum requirements, training in how to use
  • training and support for anaphylaxis/emergency response.
