[1]     Name of Instrument

This instrument is the Veterans’ Entitlements (Treatment Principles – Vaccinations for Overseas Travel) Instrument 2010

 

[2]  Commencement

 

This instrument commences, or is taken to have commenced, on

1 August 2010.

 


 

Schedule

 

1.      Paragraph 4.8.1(k) (Other matters)

 

            omit, substitute:

 

(k)     vaccination for an entitled person who proposes to travel outside Australia, unless:

 

(i)      the person is the holder of a Gold Card; and

 

(ii)      the person is in Australia at the time the vaccination is provided; and

 

(iii)     the vaccination is provided to the person under the Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.

 

Note 1: a vaccination is not treatment of an injury or disease.  It is preventive treatment.  Normally an entitled person under the Act is only eligible for treatment of an injury or disease.  Eligibility for preventive treatment such as a vaccination is granted by a determination under s.88A of the Act – in this case the Veterans’ Entitlements (Vaccinations for Overseas Travel) Eligibility Determination 2010.

 

Note 2: an approved medical practitioner is also a Community Pharmacist under the Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
