MBS COVID-19 Vaccine Suitability Assessment Service

The MBS COVID-19 vaccine suitability assessment service is free to Medicare eligible patients and the MBS items must be bulk billed.

The MBS items are part of the Australian Government’s second phase of the COVID-19 vaccination program (known as phase 1B). Under this phase, the Government will work with accredited general practices, General Practitioner-led Respiratory Clinics and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services to vaccinate certain cohorts of persons aged 18 years of age or older.

For more information see the MBS factsheet.
