State to pay for people without medical cover
According to a circular from the Department of Health (DoH) government will reimburse private sites for the vaccination of uninsured people. This will include walk-ins, provided they were eligible for vaccination and had registered on the government’s electronic vaccine data system.
This will compensate for most public-sector sites not operating at weekends and boost numbers at private-sector sites, where demand has dwindled in recent weeks Private sites would be provided with credit notes to cover the cost of the vaccines and administration fees which will be offset against invoice payable to
the vaccine distributors appointed by the government.
