Pharmacist immunisers are registered pharmacists who have completed additional training in immunisation allowing them to administer approved vaccines to specified patient groups. 

In October 2023, a 12-month pilot program was launched further expanding the authority of approved community pharmacists to provide advice and some travel vaccines (hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, and polio).  

The purpose of this program is to increase access to affordable preventative healthcare as well as treatment for travel-related illness.
