COVID-19 Vaccination


We are currently offering the  Pfizer COVID-19  vaccine - we run COVID vaccine clinics most days




How can I make an appointment?


If you have Medicare and are over 12 (we are not vaccinating children as we do not stock the reduced dose Pfizer vaccine) then you may make an appointment here. If you don't have Medicare then you need to get your vaccine at one of the state vaccination centres.


You can check your eligibility here.


How much does it cost?


The government is paying for both the vaccine itself and the appointment - these will be bulk billed to Medicare

Will I get a certificate of vaccination?

No. The details of your immunisation will be uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register, you can download a statement of your immunisations from there.

Which vaccine will I get?

We only offer the latest Pfizer vaccine

Are there side effects from the vaccine?

Yes, as with all medications there is the possibility of side effects, these are similar to what we see in the annual influenza vaccination The common side effects, which include fever, sore muscles, tiredness and headache usually start within 24 hours of vaccination and last for 1–2 days. These side effects are expected and are not of concern unless severe or persistent and can be managed with paracetamol, fluids and rest. The reports of the rare clotting complications have occurred later (between day 4 and 20 after vaccination) and have generally been severe, requiring hospitalisation.
Patients should seek immediate medical attention if, a few days after vaccination, they develop symptoms such as:

  • as a severe or persistent headache or blurred vision

  • shortness of breath, chest pain, leg swelling or persistent abdominal pain

  • unusual skin bruising and/or pinpoint round spots beyond the site of injection.

Very Common (may affect more than 1 in 10 people)

tenderness, pain, warmth, redness, itching, swelling or bruising where the injection is given

chills or feeling feverish


feeling sick (nausea)

joint pain or muscle ache

Common (may affect up to 1 in 10 people)

Uncommon (may affect up to 1 in 100 people)

excessive sweating, itchy skin or rash

In clinical trials there were very rare reports of events associated with inflammation of the nervous system, which may cause numbness, pins and needles, and/or loss of feeling. However, it is not confirmed whether these events were due to the vaccine.

If you have a severe or unusual side effect it is important that this is reported to the TGA - you can either ask your GP to do this or report it directly yourself.
