Drawn from the lecture interview with Dr Penny Browne and Ms Georgie Maysom on the Healthed Podcast, ‘Medicolegal Risks and the COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout’

– Ensure people presenting for the vaccine are eligible. This is more of a challenge when people who don’t usually come to your practice present for vaccination. Can ask for a health summary from usual doctor, or get them to complete a medical history questionnaire. Easiest solution is to get patient to complete an ‘eligibility declaration’ – downloadable from the Department of Health website.
