Albury Wodonga Health has purchased a storage unit capable of keeping the Pfizer vaccine at -70 degrees as preparations get underway for the first distribution.
Jabs for the general public will be some months away yet, with phase 1A involving priority staff in health, aged care and disability and residents in aged and disability care.
After news broke of a Border vaccine hub last week, chief operating officer Emma Poland did not have any further details of NSW coverage.
"It's exciting news that [Health] Minister [Martin] Foley today has confirmed that Albury Wodonga Health will be one of nine Victorian hospital vaccination hubs," she said.
"For Albury Wodonga Health, our public health unit catchment area is the five local government areas of Alpine, Indigo, Towong, Wangaratta and Wodonga.
"So it's just about what that distribution looks like, whether it's all [people] coming into that central location, or whether we go out to administer that as well.
"That model of care and delivery is something that's an important priority for our project team as we speak.
"We're committed as much as possible for people to be able to access that vaccine locally rather than having to travel."
Up to 1000 jabs will be delivered weekly at a Wodonga location, from an unexpected start date of March.
While the number of AWH staff eligible in the first roll-out is yet to be finalised, vaccinating the first group could take up to six weeks as two doses at least three weeks apart are required.
It's likely further vaccines, such as the AstraZeneca product which the Therapeutic Goods Administration will make a determination on this month, will be rolled out by other providers.
"Those later vaccines, including the AstraZeneca distribution ... I anticipate will include primary health networks and others," Ms Poland said.
"It's really important that we can secure that workforce to deliver the program.
"We are still actively recruiting for up to 20 nurses at this stage ... registered nurses, enrolled nurses and assistants in nursing," she said.
"We will actively work to keep our staff and our communities informed and we're really proud to be part of this program."
Goulburn Valley Health will also have a vaccination hub, as will Wagga - as one of 11 in NSW.
The Commonwealth is leading the program and advises the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine are expected to arrive and be rolled out in mid-to-late February.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Monday the aim is "to offer all Australians the opportunity to be vaccinated by October".
"This will be one of the largest logistics exercises ever seen in Australia," he said.
"We will be vaccinating more than 25 million people, having secured over 140 million doses, enough to cover the Australian population several times over.
"The TGA recently approved the Pfizer vaccine for people aged over 16 years here in Australia. Unlike other jurisdictions around the world, this was a formal approval, not an emergency one.
"Australia is one of a small handful of countries, once again, to have sovereign vaccine manufacturing capacity.
IN OTHER NEWS:
"We'll have thousands of points of presence across Australia - hospitals, GPs, pharmacies, respiratory clinics, Aboriginal health services and a specialist surge workforce.
"This will ensure we get the vaccine to all Australians, including people in rural, remote and very remote areas and others who are hard to reach."
