COVID Updates

 

-

PPE update

As of this week, WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) has received its full distribution from the National Medical Stockpile which contains enough PPE stock to fill and dispatch all pending orders within two weeks.

Orders to Aboriginal Community Controlled Heath Services and GP Respiratory Clinics have already been dispatched and we are now working though all other orders.
 

PPE eligibility

We have updated information provided previously on PPE eligibility. This confirms that general practices which have agreed to see respiratory patients face to face and COVID positive patients virtually, or which are conducting services that may put them in contact with patients with respiratory symptoms are eligible to order P2/N95 respirators and eye protection until 31 March 2022. Please ensure you indicate your eligibility by selecting the appropriate option on the WAPHA PPE order form.

Practices have been provided with a personalised link to order PPE that has been emailed to the designated contact at the practice. This link prepopulates your organisation’s information so you can order PPE more quickly. If you are unable to find your organisation’s personalised link, please email pperesponse@wapha.org.au

Alternatively you can access the WAPHA PPE Order form located on the Practice Assist Website and complete your organisation’s contact details and submit a PPE request.

Additionally, soon to be introduced emergency PPE arrangements will mean practices, which do not presently meet the eligibility requirements for the comprehensive PPE bundles but which are impacted or are in urgent need of PPE, i.e. practices which cannot see patients due to a lack of PPE, will be able to contact us via pperesponse@wapha.org.au to discuss their situation.

New COVID-19 resources for at-risk patient cohorts

In addition to not being vaccinated, there are numerous other factors that can increase the risk of more serious and severe illness from COVID-19 as identified by the Australian Government Department of Health.
 
To make it easier for general practices to identify their patient cohorts that are at greater risk, we have developed the COVID-19 Identifying At-Risk Patient Cohorts resource.
 
This new resource outlines a list of risk factors with links to the relevant Pen CS recipes that practices can use to quickly identify patients who may require extra support before they contract COVID-19.
 
In this edition we are focusing further on new COVID-19 resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, which is one of the cohorts that have been identified with an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission and severity. General practices can play a significant role in improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and mitigating the risk of COVID-19.
 
To assist general practitioners (GPs) and practices with providing specific support and information to this at-risk patient cohort, we have created a new COVID-19 GP Checklist for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People resource.
 
This simple, two-page resource details a range of actions and MBS item numbers that can be used to prepare, support, manage, educate and empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
If you would like further information about supporting at-risk patient cohorts, contact the team at Practice Assist by calling 1800 2 ASSIST (1800 2 277 478) or emailing practiceassist@wapha.org.au

What can we do if we have a COVID-19 positive case in our practice?

Picture1-(1).pngThe prospect of a COVID-19 positive case in your practice is now becoming a real possibility. Given that WA has transitioned to a High Caseload environment, understanding the current definition of a close contact will be essential to your response.

We are currently awaiting further information from WA State Health however your initial response should be to contact Public Health Emergency Operations Centre (PHEOC) 1300 316 555.

Regarding information to give to your patients please advise them to contact 13COVID (13 26843) and visit Healthy WA for a range of relevant and up to date information.

For additional support for your clinical team please direct them to WA Department of Health.

There is no better time to ensure that you have your practice plan in place. Contact Practice Assist 1800 2 ASSIST (277 478) for further assistance with the use of our COVID-19 resources and one to one support in developing your plan.

Stay tuned, we will release further information and resources as soon as it is available.

COVID-19 vaccine stock: Metropolitan adult Comirnaty (Pfizer) surplus

WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) is aware of large quantities of excess adult Comirnaty (Pfizer) in the metropolitan area.

Practices that would like extra vaccines to hold additional clinics should complete the stock redistribution survey.

Practices needing to transfer excess vaccines should give WAPHA as much notice as possible to account for vaccine expiry dates.

It is unlikely that WAPHA can assist with redistribution if the vaccines are due to expire in five days or less.

Please be advised that WAPHA cannot guarantee the successful transfer of stock.

Practices are encouraged to attempt to arrange stock redistribution within their networks of nearby practices and pharmacies.

For logistics and delivery queries, please contact the Vaccine Operations Centre (VOC) for further assistance on 1800 318 208 or via email

Nuvaxovid (Novavax) expression of interest (EOI)

General practices that are already participating in the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program can continue to submit an expression of interest to The Australian Government Department of Health to expand their participation to receive an ongoing allocation of the Nuvaxovid (Novavax) vaccine for individuals over 18 years of age who: 

  • have not received their primary course vaccinations; and
  • have expressed an interest in this vaccine.


Nuvaxovid (Novavax) has not applied for regulatory authorisation to be used as a booster, so therefore cannot be used as a booster dose at this time.

Read the Australian Government Department of Health fact sheet for more information on the Nuvaxovid (Novavax) vaccine EOI requirements, allocation and timeframes.

The Department of Health has advised there has already been a high-level interest across Australia from primary care sites wishing to administer the Nuvaxovid (Novavax) vaccine and they intend to onboard practices in tranches.

These tranches have been identified by the Department by considering vaccination rates, to maintain per capita state equity and align with existing order windows were possible.

The deadline for interested practices seeking delivery in the first delivery windows (from mid to late February) has closed, but practices can continue to register their expression of interest for subsequent supply. 

The supply of the Nuvaxovid (Novavax) vaccine would be in addition to existing Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine and/or SpikeVax (Moderna) vaccine allocations.

Thank you to those practices that have already expressed their interest through this process.

WA Primary Health Alliance is available to answer questions on the National Vaccine Rollout through Practice Assist. Email practiceassist@wapha.org.au or telephone 1800 2 ASSIST (1800 2 277 478).

REMINDER - Reporting adverse events following immunisation

Immunisation providers are reminded that suspected adverse events following immunisation (AEFI) are notifiable conditions in WA (Public Health Regulations, 2017) and must be reported to the WA Vaccine Safety Surveillance (WAVSS) system within 72 hours of recognition of the event.  This includes deaths and other serious outcomes that may occur up to 42 days following immunisation with a COVID-19 vaccine.

Immunisation providers are asked to be aware of the extended time-frame during which AEFI may occur following a COVID-19 vaccine and to report any suspected adverse event using the WAVSS on-line reporting system.
 

What is an Adverse Events Following Immunisation (AEFI)? 

An AEFI is an unwanted or unexpected event occurring after the administration of a vaccine. An AEFI may occur several hours or days or even weeks after vaccination. An AEFI may be due to a person’s response to the vaccine, coincidence (that is, it would have occurred regardless of vaccination) or incorrect handling or administration of a vaccine.
 
 

Do I need to report all AEFIs? 

Healthcare providers who become aware of an AEFI have a statutory responsibility to notify the Western Australian Department of Health within 72 hours of diagnosis as specified in the Public Health Act 2016 and the Public Health Regulations 2017.
 
You should report: 
  • Any significant event following immunisation 
  • Any vaccine reaction which requires assessment by a doctor or nurse 
  • Any reaction which has affected a family’s confidence in future immunisation  
Common expected reactions following immunisation, such as mild fever, redness or swelling at the injection site, do not need to be reported.  


How do I report an AEFI? 

Report the adverse event online at www.safevac.org.au.  You will need to register if it is your first time reporting an AEFI.  The Western Australian Vaccine Safety Surveillance (WAVSS) clinical team will assess all reported AEFIs. The WAVSS team may contact you or the patient directly if further details are required. The patient may be referred to a specialist clinic for review or supervision for future vaccination. All AEFIs will be reported to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) by WAVSS staff.  

For clinical advice for all AEFIs call the WAVSS team at 08 6456 0208 (Mon-Fri,8am-4:30pm).
 
Whilst WAVSS can provide advice to clinicians regarding AEFI assessment, it cannot provide acute management advice to patients. Patients who require medical advice due to ongoing symptoms should seek clinical assessment and management with their GP, or at their local Hospital Emergency Department.

Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS) expanded escort eligibility criteria

The PATS team is excited to announce the expanded escort eligibility criteria.

The escort eligibility criteria can be viewed on the PATS website.
 
With the PATS Online Portal development underway, the PATS Application/Claim Forms will not be updated at this point. If you have a patient who meets the eligibility criteria for an escort, but the reason is not listed on the form (ie journey navigation), you can simply write the reason in the space provided for “other”.
 
This expanded escort criteria comes following a funding commitment from the State Government to enhance the Scheme. This commitment also has seen the increase in commercial accommodation subsidies of up to $100 per night for PATS eligible patients and up to an extra $15 per night for escorts, effective from 13 September 2021.
