Booking a vaccination

⚠️ COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE 

Booster doses now available

COVID-19 booster doses are now available at the Community Vaccination Hub in Norlane to anyone aged 18 and over who had their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine more than six months ago.

 A COVID-19 booster dose helps prevent waning immunity (loss of protection) against COVID-19. Eligible people will receive the Pfizer vaccine as their booster dose. They can safely get this Pfizer booster dose regardless of which COVID-19 vaccine they received for their initial doses.

 People can also get a booster dose if they have completed an initial vaccination course overseas with a COVID-19 vaccine recognised by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. 

To make a booking click booking link below or phone 1800 675 398. Walk-ins are also available. The Community Vaccination Hub in Norlane is open Mon-Sat 8.30am-3.30pm.

All people with a disability, regardless of age, can now book a COVID-19 vaccination at the special access clinic by calling 0434 856 014 or read more here.

Vaccination reactions

If you experience a reaction after your COVID-19 vaccine that concerns you, please contact your usual GP. To assist with the national monitoring of vaccine safety, you can also submit a report via safevac.org.au.

AstraZeneca vaccine information

The Australian Government received important advice from Australia’s expert vaccine advisory body, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) about the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine for people under the age of 60.

The side effect involves thrombosis, which is blood clotting, and thrombocytopenia, which is a low blood platelet count. This very rare side-effect can affect 1 in 250,000 people.

The risk of this side effect may be greater for people aged under 60 years, and ATAGI has advised that the Pfizer vaccine is preferred over the AstraZeneca vaccine in adults aged under 60 years.

Timing other vaccinations and the COVID-19 vaccine

The minimum time required between another vaccine and a dose of COVID-19 vaccine is 7 days.
