How can I check if I'm eligible for the vaccine?
To see if you are eligible for the COVID vaccine, go to the Australian Government's eligibility checker.
People over 60 can now request Pfizer or Moderna but need to use the eligibility checker method of booking to make these special appointments. StarHealth clinics are only vaccinating 60+ with AstraZeneca at the moment due to Victorian Government requirements.
Where can I get vaccinated?
Within Port Phillip and nearby there are participating general practice (doctors), community health services and vaccination centres that provide vaccinations.
The Australian Government Eligibility Checker can help you find a participating provider that can give you a COVID-19 vaccine.
You can also call the National Coronavirus and COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline on 1800 020 080 to find a clinic where you can make a vaccination booking.
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia also has a Find a Pharmacy search on their website. You can use this to find pharmacies that are providing COVID-19 vaccinations.
Please note, The minimum interval between Pfizer doses has now been reduced to 3 weeks. You can reschedule second dose appointments to an earlier date via the Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398 or the State Government bookings portal.
