You can choose whether to have the vaccination or not. 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 50 years. This is due to a potentially increased risk of blood clots from the AstraZeneca vaccine in adults aged under 50 years. For more information, read the statement by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisations (external link).
cohealth currently only administers the AstraZeneca vaccine.
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 50 years.
cohealth is working with the Victorian Vaccination Hubs to obtain the Pfizer vaccine. We will provide an update as we receive more information.
