Covid vaccinations

The mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are the preferred booster vaccines and these are the ones that we are offering. Where possible, we will accommodate your preference, however we don’t always have both brands available.

Note:

Morningside & Belmont General Practice Clinics will not be administering COVID-19 vaccinations for under 5s or the AstraZeneca and Novavax vaccines.  If you are wanting to make bookings for these, it can be done via the Vaccine Clinic Finder: https://www.health.gov.au/resources/apps-and-tools/covid-19-vaccine-clinic-finder

 

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

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.

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.  

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. 

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 can access it:

  • through the Medicare app, your MyGov account, or My Health Record (instructions here)
  • by calling the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 and asking them to post your immunisation history statement

Printed copies of your COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate or international COVID-19 vaccination certificate, can also be used as proof of Covid-19 vaccination
