The Victorian Specialist Immunisation Services (VicSIS) network was established in 2021 to help support the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Victoria. It was coordinated and funded by the Victorian Department of Health (DH) with clinical support provided by SAEFVIC (the Victorian vaccine safety service).   

VicSIS provided specialist vaccination services for adults and children who had experienced an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) with a COVID-19 vaccine, or for those who were identified as at-risk of experiencing an AEFI.   

From January 31, 2023 VicSIS services were discontinued. Patients who have experienced an AEFI following vaccination with a COVID-19 vaccine, are encouraged to speak to their local health provider for further advice or contact SAEFVIC.
