For people aged Under 5 years it is not recommended; and those aged 5-17 it is also not recommended, unless severely immunocompromised.

Yes, the COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Australia have undergone rigorous testing in clinical trials to ensure their safety and efficacy. These vaccines have met the strict standards set by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for quality, safety, and effectiveness. Extensive monitoring continues to assess the vaccines’ safety in real-world settings. The vaccines have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of severe illness, hospitalisation, and death from COVID-19. Getting vaccinated is a crucial step in controlling the spread of the virus and protecting yourself and others.

Like all vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccines can cause side effects, but most are mild and temporary. Common side effects include pain or swelling at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea. These side effects usually resolve within a couple of days and are signs that the body is building protection against COVID-19. Serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, are rare but can occur. If you have any concerns, discuss with our health professionals beforehand.

While COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalisation, and death, SARS-CoV-2 infection can still occur. However, vaccinated individuals are much less likely to experience severe symptoms compared to unvaccinated individuals. Additionally, the risk of transmitting the virus to others is significantly reduced among vaccinated individuals. It’s important to continue practising preventive measures such as wearing masks in high-risk settings, practising good hand hygiene, and following public health guidelines even after vaccination.

Yes, you can get the COVID-19 vaccine and flu vaccine at the same appointment. However, if you experience a side effect, such as fever, following a vaccination, then you will not be administered another vaccine until the side effect has resolved.  

Yes. We accept walk-in COVID-19 vaccination during the week from 9-6 Monday to Friday.
