VIVAS Data Collection
Strategic Alignment Attributes
VIVAS is accessed by Public Health Units across Queensland as well as Communicable Diseases Branch.
VIVAS is the pathway for distributing vaccines to public and private vaccination providers throughout Queensland. It is also used to forecast vaccine demand and manage vaccine inventory.
Collection and Usage Attributes
VIVAS serves two functions:

- It was an immunisation register and was used to capture vaccination events for programs for Children, School Based Vaccination program (SBVP), and Other 'at risk' groups to manage outbreaks. The vaccination register function of VIVAS ceased on 01/04/2019.

- It is also a Vaccine Administration System, that enables Queensland Health Immunisation Program (QHIP) to coordinate the procurement and distribution of government funded vaccines to vaccine service providers, and to minimise vaccine wastage by ensuring that vaccines are used before expiry date and kept under strict temperature-controlled conditions.
Information relevant to vaccine distribution to service providers (what, when, who) and how they manage the vaccines including details of cold chain breaches.
