The Tasmanian Government is running free community clinics across the State. These clinics give the Pfizer and flu vaccines.
Community clinics may be in place for a limited time, before moving to other locations and communities. Other community clinics are in more permanent locations.
It is now recommended that everyone wait 3 months after a confirmed case of COVID infection before receiving their next dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The next scheduled dose should be given as soon as possible after this period. A longer gap between infection and vaccination is likely to lead to a better immune response and result in longer protection from reinfection.
Bookings are required.
How to book
Please note – if you are booking online and have already been vaccinated at a state-run clinic, you should select “Already registered” in the top right-hand corner of the booking page.
Keep COVID-safe at community clinics.
A number of general practices are offering the COVID-19 vaccine.
Check your regular practice’s website or give them a call to see if they’re participating in the rollout.
If you are eligible to receive the vaccine and your general practice is not providing it, you can access a free vaccine at a community clinic, pharmacy, GP respiratory clinic, or another GP accepting other patients. Check the Australian Government clinic finder.
GP Respiratory Clinics
There are Australian Government-funded GP respiratory clinics located in Hobart, Launceston and St Helens offering the vaccine for free to eligible people.

Selected community pharmacies are delivering the AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Moderna (Spikevax) and Pfizer (Comirnaty) vaccine to people aged 12 years and older. Select pharmacies are delivering Moderna (Spikevax) to children aged 6-11 and paediatric Pfizer (Comirnaty) to children aged 5-11.
Use the Australian Government clinic finder to find a participating pharmacy in your area.
Boosters and Third Primary Doses
Third (booster) doses are recommended for all people aged 16 and over from three months after their second dose of the vaccine. A fourth (winter) dose is recommended four months after previous third (booster) dose for Tasmanians aged 65+, aged and disability care residents under 65 years; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50+ and immunocompromised people aged 16+.
Boosters are recommended to maintain protection and immunity against COVID-19.
Third Primary Dose
A third primary dose of vaccination is recommended for people who are severely immunocompromised as part of their primary course of vaccination because they might not be fully protected by the regular two doses of a vaccine.
A third primary dose is different to a booster vaccine and should be given between two and six months after their second dose of the vaccine.For more information view Boosters and Third Primary Doses.
