  • If you can book online, when you see the Book Appointment screen, please click on COVID-19 Vaccine Registered Nurse – see yellow circle in screenshot below.

How to book appointment

  • Next, use the arrows to select the date and one of the times listed below that date that best suits you for your vaccine appointment.
  • The online system also gives you the option to schedule your second Covid-19 Vaccination 12 weeks later.
  • Once your booking is confirmed, you will receive a notification and a link to complete the consent form  prior to your vaccine appointment.

PLEASE NOTE: there are currently only a limited number of appointments available for COVID-19 vaccinations. This reflects our current supply of vaccines but more appointments will become available as soon as more vaccine supplies arrive.

Eligibility

The free vaccines will be rolled-out in phases such that priority groups receive their vaccination earlier. You can check which group you will fall into via the:

COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker.

Preparing for your COVID-19 vaccine

The National Roll-out Strategy provides the following advice to help you prepare for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Evidence of Vaccination

Once you have had your vaccinations, we will report to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). You will then be able to access your immunisation history through your Medicare Online account, the Medicare Express Plus app, myGov or My Health Record. We can also provide paper-based copies if required.

What about my Flu Vaccination?

It is recommended not schedule and administer the influenza and COVID-19 vaccine on the same day. The preferred minimum timeframe between these vaccines is 14 days. We will provide further advice about flu vaccinations over the coming months.
