EACH COVID-19 & Flu Vaccination Clinic

As part of Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program, we are pleased to be an approved vaccination provider for Flu and the COVID-19 vaccines for our local areas and the wider community.

We currently provide Flu and COVID 19 vaccinations such as Pfizer and Novavax vaccines.

We are now offering free flu vaccination for community members with a Medicare Card and eligible under the National Immunisation Program.

To book a flu vaccination book online at the links below or call 1300 097 151 .

To find out when you are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination, please visit and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker here.

People who receive a COVID-19 vaccination have a much lower chance of getting sick from COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is free, you will not need a prescription from a GP to get vaccinated.

 

​COVID-19 Booster

Booster doses are available to everyone 16 years and over who have had both doses of their primary course of a COVID-19 vaccine.

A booster dose provides longer-lasting protection against the virus that can help prevent severe illness.

The Corminaty (Pfizer) vaccine is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and is recommended as a COVID-19 booster dose. You can have the Pfizer vaccine as a booster dose regardless of which vaccine you had for your first 2 doses. 

Please Note: Novavax boosters are limited to community members who can not have other COVID 19 vaccines. Community members must provide evidence of not being able to have other vaccines, and will need to be assessed by one of our GPs. If a GP is unavailable, community members may have to return when a GP can see them for assessment.

COVID-19 Winter Boosters are now available from 4 months after a first booster dose or 4 months after a COVID-19 infection.

The following groups are currently eligible for a COVID-19 winter dose:

  • Adults over 65 years of age
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders over 50 years of age
  • Anyone over 16 years and older and is severely immunocompromised

An EACH Mobile Vaccination Team can come to your home (if eligible) or to your community.

For more information and to book, please get in touch with us on 1300 097 151.

 

COVID Vaccination for children aged 5-11

Children aged 5-11 are now eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the Pfizer vaccine for this age group with 2 doses scheduled  8 weeks apart.

While children and young people are less likely than adults to get severe symptoms if they contract COVID-19, some can still get very sick – this includes children with certain pre-existing conditions, such as obesity, down syndrome, or cerebral palsy. Some children and adolescents can also develop chronic symptoms, more than one or two months after COVID infection, called Long-COVID, which can be avoided through vaccination.

Vaccinating younger children can also help to prevent transmission to other children and older age groups, including family members who may be at higher risk, such as grandparents.

To book an appointment for a child, please call 1800 675 398.

 

Please book your COVID-19 or flu vaccination by calling 1300 097 151, 8:30am – 4pm or online via links below.

We recommend you pre-register before attending a clinic to secure an appointment. All children aged under 16 attending our vaccination clinic must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Walk-ins are available only to priority cohorts only. This includes essential services workers.

Please note: Masks must be worn at our clinic. Only our sensory clinic can cater to community members with a mask exemption. If you require assistance, please contact us ahead of your visit to discuss this requirement. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sensory area at our clinic in Ringwood

We’ve established a sensory area available at our COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Ringwood to provide greater access for people with a disability or sensory needs and anyone who may need additional support.

The sensory area offers:

  • vaccinations for people with disability or mental health conditions and their support staff, volunteer or carer*
  • longer appointment times
  • quiet, large and separate space where vaccinations will take place
  • an environment that can be altered to accommodate peoples needs e.g. a dimmable room for people who may be more sensitive to light, an accessible entry point for wheelchairs and other mobility equipment
  • customisable experiences for those who require a different approach
  •  vaccinations to community members with a mask exemption
  • parking directly in front with easy access to the Clinic.

*People will only be able to bring one additional person to the appointment, who will also need to be booked in if they are being vaccinated.

Please let us know of any other assistance you may need at the time of making an appointment. After you have made a booking, a staff member will contact you to further discuss your individual needs.

For more information and to book, please get in touch with us on 1300 097 151 or via vaccinationcallcentre@each.com.au.

Getting ready for your appointment

Please bring your Medicare card or photo ID to your appointment.

Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:

  • if you feel unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
  • if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
  •  if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or if you are in quarantine.

If you have had another vaccine in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.

What does getting vaccinated involve?

To be vaccinated you will get a needle in your arm. Two doses of a vaccine are required, so two appointments will be needed.

View COVID-19 Vaccines Information

Medical experts have studied COVID-19 vaccines to make sure they are safe. Most side effects are mild and don’t last for long. As with any vaccine or medicine, there may be rare and/or unknown side effects.

Before you get vaccinated, tell the person giving you the vaccination if you:

  • have any allergies, particularly anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction);
  • if you have an Epi Pen or have had one before;
  • if you are immunocompromised. This means that you have a weakened immune system that may make it harder for you to fight infections and other diseases. Sometimes a disease like diabetes or cancer can cause this or certain medicines or treatments you take, such as medicine for cancer.

Your vaccination will be recorded with the Australian Immunisation Register, as required by Australian law. You can view your vaccination record online through your Medicare account, MyGov account and My Health Record account.

Keeping Safe

Some people may still get COVID-19 after vaccination. So you must still follow public health precautions as required in your state or territory to stop the spread of COVID-19 including:

  • keep your distance – stay at least 1.5 metres away from other people,
  • washing your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • wear a mask, if your state or territory has advised you should
  • stay home if you are unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms and arrange to get a COVID-19 test.

If you have concerns about the vaccine or require more information:

  • Visit the Australian Government’s vaccine website for more information
  • Speak to your GP
  • Contact our call centre on 1300 097 151(please note due to high demand) there may be a significant delay in returning your call.
