Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you, your family, your friends and the community
There are a number of ways you can get your COVID-19 vaccine.
A number of general practices are offering the COVID-19 vaccine including for children aged 6 months to under 5 years of age. Check the Australian Government clinic finder to find a vaccine near you. You can also check your regular practice’s website or give them a call to see if they’re providing COVID-19 vaccines.
If you are eligible to receive the vaccine and your general practice is not providing it, you can access a free vaccine at apharmacy or another GP practice.
Selected pharmacies are delivering the AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Moderna (Spikevax) and Pfizer (Comirnaty) vaccine to people aged 12 years and older. Some pharmacies are also delivering Moderna (Spikevax) to children aged 6-11 and paediatric Pfizer (Comirnaty) to children aged 5-11. Some pharmacies are also offering Novavax (Nuvaxovid) vaccines.
Use the Australian Government clinic finder to find a participating pharmacy in your area.
