COVID 19 Vaccinations

We are a covid 19 vaccination provider

Which vaccine is available, and what should I have?

We offer the Pfizer, AstraZeneca and NOVOVAX COVID-19 vaccines.

Recommendations:

  • Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the only recommended vaccine for children aged 5-12 years. Vaccinations for this age group commenced 10 January 2022. Children will receive a dose equivalent to one third of a standard adult dose. The interval between first and second dose for this age group is eight weeks.
  • Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the preferred vaccine for people aged 12 to 59 years, but is now available for anyone over 5 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.
  • NOVOVAX is approved for use in people aged 18+ as their primary vaccine. It provides an alternative to mRNA and viral vector vaccines.

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.

Booster doses

Booster vaccines provide a safeguard against severe disease, particularly for older Australians and those in vulnerable groups. We are providing additional doses to severely immunocompromised people aged 12 years as per the ATAGI guidelines. Please contact the practice on 42844 622 for more information.

Four months after your second vaccine (or COVID infection), people over the age of 16 years are eligible for a booster dose.

An additional winter booster (fourth dose) is now available for people over 65 years and other population groups. Please read our recent blog post for details.

Pfizer is the recommended booster vaccine, and to book your booster online please select COVID-19 Vaccine Pfizer.

NOVOVAX and AstraZeneca are available as booster shots if there are no other suitable vaccines.

Your Vaccine Appointment

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 are unable to come to your vaccination appointment for any reason, please extend the courtesy of cancelling your appointment via online bookings or calling the practice on 4284 4622.

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.
