There are times that we find we have extra doses of vaccine near the end of a clinic. This could be because of no shows or last minute cancellations. Given the importance and limited supply of this vaccine, it is imperative that we not waste one dose. We also need to consider that the vaccine is fragile and according to its unique storage and handling guidelines cannot be moved beyond the clinic it has been brought to.
As our fixed sites grow, it is important for us to have a group of ready individuals that live within 30 minutes of one of the fixed sites and would be willing to come and get a vaccine with last minute notice. These individuals still must be part of the priority group we are targeting.
The clinic lead will monitor doses available at the clinic, when they know doses will be available they will pull up the contingency list and begin calling people that meet the eligibility criteria (phone number may come up as a private caller). This individual will be invited to come to the clinic to receive the extra dose.
The individual will be given further direction at the time on where to go and what to do. If there are no extra doses, then we will not need to implement the contingency list for that site on that day.
If you would like to be on the list, please complete the following eform.

Note: Individuals only need to submit their name once. You will need to provide a piece of work ID (registration card or letter from your employer) as proof that you meet the eligibility criteria for this category.
*The contingency list only applies to those people needing FIRST DOSES ONLY.
