COVID-19 Vaccine Information
In-line with our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our patients and local communities, Your Health Griffith is participating in the Governments Covid Vaccination Roll Out. Your Health Griffith and is taking bookings for existing patients eligible to be vaccinated under current phases of the Government program.
We are currently administering the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine for all patients aged 5 years and over, the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for people aged 18 years and over, and the Moderna Covid-19 Vaccine for eligible patients aged 6 months to under 5 years.
Boosters are recommended to maintain immunity against COVID-19. You are eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose if you:
- are 12 to 15, and:
- are severely immunocompromised, or
- have a disability with significant or complex health needs, or
- have severe, complex, or multiple health conditions that increase the risk of severe COVID-19
- are 16 years and older, and
- completed your primary dose course of COVID-19 vaccination at least 3 months ago.
If you are aged 18 years or older, you can have the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as a booster dose regardless of which vaccine you had for your first 2 doses. If you have had COVID-19 you should wait to be vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine for 3 months after your confirmed infection. The date you had your last COVID-19 vaccine is on your COVID-19 digital certificate.
Bookings for a booster dose can be made online by clicking the link below and selecting “Covid-19 Vaccine Dose 3/Booster - Pfizer”.
All patients must complete an online registration form prior to their appointment. This is sent from our online booking provider when making the appointment online. If you have any issues in completing the registration online, please contact the administrative team at Your Health Griffith on (02) 69627661 and we will be happy to assist you.
There is no cost for a COVID-19 vaccine for Medicare card holders. If you do not have a Medicare Card, please book your vaccination at one of the Government Vaccination Hubs instead.
Advice on prioritising groups for the COVID-19 vaccine was given to the Government by The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI)
