How the VAPP works
The Vaccine Administration Partners Program (VAPP) operates through a Head Agreement and under two models:
- Model A for agencies (federal, state and territory and local government)
- Model B for enterprises (private businesses, peak groups, NGOs)
VAPP Model A
Model A supports government agencies in organising COVID-19 vaccinations for their staff.
Agencies wishing to use an immunisation provider (IProvider) from the panel must contact their central procurement agency to organise access.
States and territories must also sign a Deed of Participation with the Australian Government before commencement. A Deed of Participation uses the provisions of the Head Agreement.
VAPP Model B
Model B (also called Enterprise Orders) gives enterprises the opportunity to offer their staff vaccination in either the workplace or community setting. Model B is a commercial arrangement between the contracting party and the IProvider.
Parties wishing to make Model B arrangements must:
- contact an IProvider from the current panel list
- download an Enterprise Order Request form
- forward the form with supporting documents to the VAPP team.
Under Model B the Australian Government provides access to COVID-19 vaccines but does not subsidise administration activities.
