Important Notice: Carollo Horton QBE Pharmacy Professional Indemnity Policy Ref: QM2631-1118 (Policy) changes for participation in the Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program

Some of you have asked us if your involvement in Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program is covered by your Carollo Horton QBE Pharmacy Professional Indemnity Policy Ref: QM2631-1118 (Policy).

The Policy provides cover for the delivery of any vaccine intended to provide acquired immunity against the virus causing COVID-19 that is approved for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). This affirmative cover includes the AstraZeneca, Pfizer or any other COVID-19 vaccine approved by the TGA.

This coverage is being provided by way of a suite of COVID-19 endorsements we have added to your Policy.

You do not have to ‘opt-in’ for this cover, and for those of you who have chosen to participate in delivering the vaccine, the cover will automatically apply. For those chemists or pharmacies not participating, your Policy remains unchanged.

Please be aware that this cover does not concern the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines, which is the responsibility of the COVID-19 vaccine manufacturer.

When you have a moment, please consider the changes we have made to your existing Policy. If you have any questions about any of the changes made, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for nominating yourself to assist with this critical front line healthcare service.
