Description: 

This resource provides information about COVID-19 vaccination, including:

  • benefits
  • safety
  • precautions
  • what to expect after vaccination.​

It also includes a consent form. This consent form is not mandatory and is provided as an example for vaccination providers to obtain patient consent prior to COVID-19 vaccination.

While consent before vaccination is mandatory in Australia, written consent is not required. Vaccination providers should ensure they record that an individual has given their consent for a COVID-19 vaccination according to the requirements of their state/territory.
