NSW Health started vaccinating high-risk groups against Monkeypox (mpox) in August 2022. eHealth NSW developed a vaccination administration management platform in just 40 days to support 22 mpox virus vaccination clinics during October and November 2022.
The vaccination administration platform provided a new booking system where eligible people could make appointments online. It also supported NSW Health staff to manage bookings and record vaccinations while integrating seamlessly with the Australian Immunisation Register.
eHealth NSW, NSW Health and LHDs all collaborated to deliver this system which has seen 5974 vaccinations booked to date.
eHealth NSW developed and launched the Vaccination Administration Management (VAM) system in 2021 to support vaccinating the NSW public against COVID-19. VAM has continued to support vaccination against the virus throughout 2022.
As of October 2022, more than 2.2 million COVID-19 vaccinations had been administered to patients who had booked their appointment via VAM via over 2.5 million registered accounts.

NSW School Vaccination Program
Along with vaccinating the general public, the statewide digital platform to support online consent, clinic management and operational reporting requirements for the NSW School Vaccination Program was developed in 2022.
In partnership with Health Protection NSW, eHealth NSW is delivering Consent and Records Management for Immunisation (CaRMI), which will replace current paper-based processes. The system is based on the Vaccination Administration Management (VAM) digital solution developed in 2021.
The new school vaccination system means parents and carers of students in Years 7 to 10 can provide online consent for their child’s routine school vaccinations from February 2023. Public Health Units (PHUs) and Community Health Centres (CHCs) will schedule clinics for the School Vaccination Program
