Provisional Vaccinator Foundation Course (PVFC)

The Provisional Vaccinator Foundation Course aims to develop an immunisation workforce to support the MMR campaign, influenza 2021 and the COVID 19 vaccine programme.

Completing the PVFC course, including the assessment and peer review component, will enable you to apply for authorisation to administer influenza and MMR vaccines to adults and children from age 3 years.

The course is run through the Immunisation Advisory Centre (IMAC).

Once you have completed the course and peer assessment, you can apply for Provisional Authorisation from the Ministry of Health using the form below. Note, this was previously administered by IMAC.
