25 Feb 2021

AMA members (and their Practice Managers) are invited to attend a second in a series of planned webinars on the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination program.  

Deputy Commonwealth Chief Medical Officer, Professor Michael Kidd, will provide a progress report on the national vaccination program and address issues relevant to both GPs and non-GP Specialists alike. The webinar will focus on: 

  • Clinical guideline clarity for vaccine use in at risk groups; 

  • Healthcare worker access to the vaccine in advance of wider population distribution; 

  • General Practice’s response to the Expression of Interest; 

  • Medico-legal issues of patient consent and the Commonwealth vaccine indemnity. 

The webinar will be chaired by AMA Federal President Dr Omar Khorshid at 3pm AEDT on Friday 5 March from 3pm to 4pm. The webinar is free for any AMA member (or their Practice Manager).
