Vaccine roll-out information Updated December 2023

Who can get a vaccine now?

Please be aware you will have to wait 15 -30mins post vaccine in the waiting room.
These appointments are for vaccines only if you have any respiratory symptoms please book a COVID 19 test or assessment. If you are unsure about having the vaccine please discuss concerns with your usual doctor and only book this appointment when ready to receive the vaccination. 
We are an approved vaccination provider for the COVID-19 vaccines, helping to provide COVID-19 immunisation for our local area and wider community. 

Vaccinations provided by Medical practitioners or approved nurse vaccinators.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has updated their advice regarding COVID-19 vaccinations. ATAGI is now recommending:

If it has been 6 months since receiving a COVID-19 vaccine or a confirmed COVID-19 infection, an additional dose:

  • is recommended for people aged 75 or older

  • should be considered for people aged 65-74 and people aged 18-64 years with severe immunocompromise, following discussion with their health care provider.


All available vaccines continue to be effective against serious COVID-19 illness, however the ATAGI is now recommending the Monovalent Omicron XBB.1.5 vaccines for eligible individuals. For more information see Department of Health and Aged Care website.



Getting ready for your appointment

Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:

• if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
