Covid-19 Vaccinations

We are a Covid-19 vaccination clinic

All COVID-19 Vaccinations to be booked online via HotDoc

Page updated October 22, 2021.  Please check this page regularly so we can let you know what we know when we know it!

People aged 12 years and over are now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine
Bookings for Pfizer (Comirnaty) are open, booking links below

Are you aged 12 years and over and wanting to book for a Pfizer vaccine? 

We have dedicated appointments for Pfizer vaccines Monday to Friday.  We will book your second dose, which will be given at least 3 weeks after the first vaccine.  

The Pfizer vaccine is recommended for all Australians aged 12 years and over

Please book an appointment online for your PFIZER vaccine

Bookings at other sites can be made online through the vaccine clinic finder, or on your phone through the Qld check-in app (you will need to download the latest version).  

If you have had your first Pfizer dose elsewhere

We are sorry, but due to the small numbers of vaccine we are receiving each week and the logistics of organising bookings, we have very limited capacity to book for second doses where we did not give the first dose

Queensland Health have advised that they will prioritise second doses of the Pfizer vaccine

Please note the following:

Our Pfizer supply is limited, hence so are our appointments

We are releasing appointments for Pfizer progressively

This allows us to stay flexible as supplies change

If you book an appointment, please be available for the second shot in 3 weeks' time - we have a little flexibility due to the numbers of vaccine we are receiving, but not much

If you have had your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, it is recommended that you have AstraZeneca as the second dose regardless of your age

  • The very low risk of blood clotting after the first vaccine is very, very, very low after the second dose
  • Unless you are pregnant, we are not able, at this time, to give you a Pfizer vaccine if you have already had an AstraZeneca vaccine

What should I do now?

Before your vaccination appointment, you should make sure that your contact and Medicare details are up to date. 

You can also read this patient factsheet developed by the Australian Government Department of Health for preparing for Covid-19 vaccination, and some tips for being ready for your vaccine here

Take a look over the vaccination consent form, which is provided for your information.  

You should receive an electronic consent form to complete when you book through HotDoc, which is our preferred method.  However, if you are unable to book online, please ask reception for a printed version of the consent form when you arrive for your vaccination appointment.  

Here is a checklist to assist you to get ready for your appointment.

Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:

  • if you are feeling 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 are a new patient to the clinic, it would be helpful if you could bring a Health Summary from your current G.P. with you to your vaccination appointment.

If you have had another vaccine in the 7 days* before your Covid-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.

*There should be a gap of 14 days between live vaccines and a Covid vaccine

An uncommon side effect of the vaccines is swelling of the lymph nodes.  Screening mammograms should be done prior to vaccination or 4-6 weeks after your second dose.

Continue to practice Covid-safe behaviours: cover your mouth when you cough, keep your distance, wash your hands, get tested and then stay home if you're sick.

Regularly check this page for further instructions.

Cost

While everyone who is living in Australia is funded to receive a vaccine, funding for vaccinations in general practice is limited to those who have a Medicare Card.  If you are ineligible for Medicare, you can receive a vaccine at no cost at other sites.

Bookings can be made through the vaccine clinic finder, or on your phone through the Qld check-in app (you will need to download the latest version).  

HealthDirect has more information about how to get vaccinated if you are not eligible for Medicare.

After your vaccination

The conditions of approval for these vaccines include close monitoring of your side effects.  Please see here for some information about vaccine side effects and instructions for what to do after your vaccination. 

If you have recently had your first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and are having side effects that you are worried about, please use the vaccine side effect checker, ask your GP, or call 13HEALTH and follow the advice.

QLD Health also has a COVID-19 adverse event following immunisation reporting form which you may access here.

Vaccine certificate

If you need a copy of your Covid-19 vaccination certificate, you will find instructions here.  Or call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 and ask them to post your immunisation history statement.
