Before you make your booking

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 received any other vaccination in the last 14 days? If so, you are advised to leave at least 14 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 50 years of age? Adults under 50 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.

Frequently asked questions

Can I call a hospital to book my vaccination appointment?

Will the COVID-19 vaccination appear on Medicare Immunisation Registers?

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. 

If I am not an Australian citizen will I be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine?

The Australian Government has made COVID-19 vaccines available free of charge for all Australian citizens, permanent residents and temporary visa holders.

Who do I contact if I have concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine?

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. 

I am afraid of needles, is there another way I can receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

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.
