COVID-19 Vaccinations

COVID-19 vaccinations are available for eligible patients

Vaccinations are available by appointment only, for those that are eligible under the Australian Governments rollout of the vaccine. We accept online appointments only. Do not call the practice to book.

We offering the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine currently and the Pfizer vaccine from late September 2021

Please note that we do not have stock of the Pfizer vaccine until late September.

First and second doses

Pfizer – we will be administering both first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine sequentially. If you have had your first dose of Pfizer elsewhere, we ask that you book with that practice for your second dose.

AstraZeneca – we will be administering both first and second doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine. If you have had your first dose elsewhere, you can still have your second dose of AstraZeneca with us. The reason for this is that we have a greater allocation of AstraZeneca and excess stock.

PLEASE READ: We are following the recommendations from the Department of Health and ATAGI. If you had your first dose of AstraZeneca, then your second dose will be AstraZeneca NOT Pfizer – the vaccines are not interchangeable.
