All responses to the EOI should be submitted via this online EOI response form. A separate EOI must be submitted for each general practice location.

This response form will CLOSE at 11:59pm AWST Monday 1 February 2021.

The form can only be completed in one sitting (i.e. it cannot be saved and completed at a later date). The supporting documents include a copy of the EOI questions for you to plan your responses.

Only accredited general practices are currently eligible to submit an EOI response. General practices who do not participate in this phase may still be involved in later phases of the vaccine rollout. All general practices who meet requirements will have the opportunity to participate in the vaccine rollout as more vaccines become available

*Commonwealth-funded general practitioner led respiratory clinics and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services do not need to apply through this EOI. They will be approached to participate through separate processes.

If you have any issues in submitting your EOI, please contact Healthy North Coast directly via your Primary Health Coordinator.

Further information on the rollout will be provided as soon as it is available.
