COVID 19: Australian Health Services Supply Chain - Vaccine Supply Chains

Globally, the world is watching in anticipation and hope for news of a vaccine. How long will it take to discover & distribute a COVID-19 vaccine to end-users?

Australian public & private industry is currently working tirelessly to discover a safe and applicable vaccine for COVID-19. 

Once a vaccine is available, how will it be distributed and what infrastructure and transport relationships will be leveraged? 

Vaccine supply chains are complex, with multiple nodes, participants and logistical dependencies. 

GRA has developed a Vaccine Supply Chain response program.
