COVID-19 vaccinations are free for everyone in Australia, even if you don’t have a Medicare card. Getting vaccinated is the most effective way to protect the whole community from COVID-19 and control the spread of the virus. The vaccine strengthens your immune system by training it to recognise and fight against the virus.
Update: The Australian Government recommends the Pfizer vaccine in adults aged under 60 years. This is due to a potentially increased risk of blood clots from the AstraZeneca vaccine in adults aged under 60 years. For more information, read the statement by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisations (external link).
cohealth are currently able to provide the Pfizer vaccine at limited sites. The majority of our sites currently only have access to AstraZeneca, please check with the clinic before booking.
People who have had the first dose of AstraZeneca without any serious side effects can be given the second dose. This includes adults aged under 60 years.
