About the platform

The Clinician Vaccine Integrated Platform (CVIP) is used to manage vaccinations and report vaccination information to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).

CVIP was developed in 2021 by the Australian Digital Health Agency, for the Department of Health, for vaccination providers who didn’t have integrated reporting software. It was an essential temporary measure to ensure the rapid delivery of the Australian Government’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

CVIP will be decommissioned and no longer available for use from 31 May 2022

CVIP users are required to transition to a new reporting software or other Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) reporting compliant process before 31 May 2022

On 7 February 2022, the Department of Health advised of the decommissioning of CVIP. CVIP was intended to assist clinics without AIR-compliant software meet their reporting obligations. The development of the CVIP was a temporary measure to ensure rapid delivery of the COVID-19 Vaccination rollout.

Many GPs and pharmacies already use a commercially available reporting solution. The commercial market for reporting software has matured in the last 12 months in response to the growing number of vaccination providers. Commercially available AIR-compliant software also offers enhanced integration with other medical software products and systems. 

CVIP users are required to transition to a new reporting software or other AIR reporting compliant process before 31 May 2022

This change may affect your site's mandatory reporting of vaccinations to the AIR.
