EACH COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

Everyone in Australia will be offered a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine.

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

We’re providing COVID-19 vaccinations at our clinics in Ringwood, Kilsyth and Pakenham.

At this time, we do not have any available appointments, please check back regularly for updates. Also at this stage, we are unable to move AstraZeneca appointments forward.

For all other bookings, please visit www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/vaccine or call 1800 675 398.

Please note – any bookings for the AstraZeneca vaccine booked after the 26th of August will receive AstraZeneca and will not be offered the Pfizer vaccine.

Currently, it’s a busy time for our Clinics, thanks to everyone who has patiently waited to get vaccinated. We apologise to anyone we were unable to see or missed on the phones. The current call-back time is up to 7 days, we apologise for any inconvenience.

Bookings are not transferable. Community members must receive the second dose of any vaccine from the same provider who administered their first dose. We can not provide a second dose if you did not receive your first dose with us.

All children aged under 16 attending our vaccination clinics must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

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.

Having a COVID-19 vaccination is a personal choice. It is important to talk to your doctor about your personal situation and any existing medical conditions to find out if vaccination is suitable for you.​​​​​​​

 

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. Ttwo doses are required, so two appointments will be needed – we’ll book your second appointment when you register.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI)  recommends an interval between the first and second doses of the AstraZeneca Vaccine is between 4 and 12 weeks, in outbreak situations (such as NSW) an interval of between 4 and 8 weeks is preferred. In non-outbreak settings, such as Victoria, the preferred interval between doses of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca remains at 12 weeks.

From Monday 2 August, the second dose of Pfizer vaccine will be booked in at least six weeks after the first dose. People who already have their second Pfizer dose appointment booked can attend their appointment as planned.

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.
