COVID 19 Vaccinations
- We are an approved COVID-19 vaccination clinic as part of the national roll-out program.
- We are always happy to accept new patients.
Which vaccine is available, and what should I have?
We offer the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine or the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
- Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the preferred vaccine for people aged 12 to 59 years, but is now available for anyone over 12 years.
- AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine can be used in adults aged 60+ years or for those under 60 years where the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is not available at the time of consultation. If you are under 60 years speak to your GP (doctor) to understand the risks and benefits of receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.
- People of any age who have had their first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine without any serious adverse events should receive the second dose of AstraZeneca vaccine.
For detailed information, read the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI)statement.
What about my second dose?
Everyone who makes an appointment for a 1st dose of a vaccine will be allocated their 2nd dose by our administration team and advised of the date and time both electronically and when they attend for their first dose.
- For the Pfizer COVID 19 vaccine, the interval between doses is 3 to 6 weeks.
- For the AstraZeneca COVID 19 vaccine, recommendations about the timing of the second dose have changed (as of July 2021) in response to the Delta strain outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in Greater Sydney. The new recommendations are now for the second dose to be delivered between 4 to 8 weeks.
Booking your appointment
- If we have vaccine availability you will be able to book these online.
- Please only contact reception if you don’t have capacity to book online.
- If there are no appointments available online, it means that we have exhausted our supply.
- To book online, when you see the Book Appointment screen, please click on COVID-19 Vaccine Registered Nurse (and select either the AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccine)
- Once your booking is confirmed, you will receive a notification and a link to complete the consent form prior to your vaccine appointment.
The free vaccines are 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.
Your Vaccine Appointment
The National Roll-out Strategy provides the following advice to help you prepare for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Please do not come to your vaccination appointment if you:
- feel unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
- are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
- are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or
- are in quarantine.
If you have had another vaccine in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.
If you cannot make it to your vaccination appointment, please contact us to arrange a new appointment.
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.
