Please use the Australian Government’s eligibility tracker to find out if you are now eligible to be vaccinated at our high-volume COVID-19 vaccination centres.
Have you had an AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination before? If so, it is recommended you leave 12 weeks between your first and second dose to maximise efficacy.
Have you had a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination before? If so, it is recommended you receive your second dose 3-6 weeks after your first dose to maximise efficacy.
Have you received any other vaccination in the last 7 days? If so, you are advised to leave at least 7 days before receiving your COVID-19 vaccine.
Have you had COVID-19 before? If you have had COVID-19 previously it is recommended you wait 3 months before receiving your COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccination is essential even if you have previously been infected to ensure ongoing protection.
Are you under 60 years of age? Please note all 40 to 59 year olds are now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine. Adults under 60 years who wish to proceed with booking for the AstraZeneca vaccine should read the information provided by the Australian Government prior to booking. Our immunisers will ensure informed consent is obtained before vaccine administration.
If you answer yes to any of the questions below, please talk to your primary care provider for advice before making a booking.
* Comirnaty (Pfizer) is the preferred vaccine for people in these groups but if not available, AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine can be considered if the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risk. For more information refer to the Patient information sheet on thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS)

Hospital sites are not taking public vaccination bookings as they are required to prioritise healthcare workers and other Phase 1a and Phase 1b recipients.
The only way to make an appointment at one of our public vaccination sites is by calling 1800 675 398. Select option 1, then option 1, then option 1.
Yes. COVID-19 vaccination will be recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register.
The record will then be made available on the MyGov website or the Express Plus Medicare app, where a person’s total immunisation history is listed, or a paper version can be printed out.
The Australian Government has made COVID-19 vaccines available free of charge for all Australian citizens, permanent residents and temporary visa holders.
The best person to talk to for advice about the COVID-19 vaccine is your doctor or healthcare provider as they will know your medical history and specific requirements.
The only way to administer the COVID-19 vaccine is by using a needle. You can let your immunisation provider know that you are afraid of needles when you attend your appointment, and they can accommodate your needs.
