Morningside and Belmont General Practice Clinics do not offer COVID-19 vaccinations for under 5 years. Please visit the Vaccine Clinic Finder to find a clinic suitable to you.

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 covid vaccine.
Continue to practice Covid-safe behaviours: cover your mouth when you cough, wash your hands, keep your distance, avoid contact with sick people and large crowds, wear a mask, get tested and then stay home if you're sick.
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.

The conditions of approval for these vaccines include close monitoring of your side effects. Please see here for some information about vaccine side effects.
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 a GP, or call 13HEALTH and follow the advice.
