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, 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. After completing the PVFC, you can do the COVID-19 education course and apply to update your authorisation to include COVID-19 vaccines.

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.
