People aged 12 years and over are now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine
Bookings for Pfizer (Comirnaty) are open, booking links below

Are you aged 12 years and over and wanting to book for a Pfizer vaccine?

We have dedicated Pfizer vaccination appointments Monday to Friday.  You can book your second dose, which is given 3 - 6 weeks after the first vaccine or 3rd dose, which must be given at least 2 months after the 2nd dose if you meet the eligibility criteria for being immunocompromised (see eligibility list) or at least 6 months after the second dose if over 18 and not eligible for the earlier third dose.   

The Pfizer vaccine is recommended for all Australians aged 12 years and over 

Please book an appointment online for your PFIZER vaccine

Bookings at other sites can be made online through the vaccine clinic finder, or on your phone through the Qld check-in app (you will need to download the latest version).  

If you have had your first Pfizer dose 

You are able to book for second doses via HotDoc.

Please note the following:

If you have had your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, it is recommended that you have AstraZeneca as the second dose regardless of your age

  • The very low risk of blood clotting after the first vaccine is very, very, very low after the second dose
  • Unless you are pregnant, we are not able, at this time, to give you a Pfizer vaccine if you have already had an AstraZeneca vaccine

3rd doses/booster doses of Covid-19 vaccines

Those at high risk can have their 3rd dose of vaccine from 2 months after their second dose (see the eligibility list)

A booster dose is recommended for everyone else who is over the age of 18 once it has been at least 6 months since the 2nd dose

As general practices started immunising with AstraZeneca in late March, this means most people who had vaccinations in the community won’t have had their 2nd dose until June and hence won’t be eligible until December

If you were in the 1a rollout (e.g. a frontline hospital healthcare worker, aged care residents or workers and such) AND you had Pfizer, you may now be 6 months (or more) since your 2nd dose and we are able to immunise you now

If you had an accelerated AstraZeneca schedule (e.g. earlier 2nd dose in high risk situations) you may also now be 6 months (or more) since your 2nd dose and we are able to immunise you now

Pfizer is recommended as the 3rd/booster dose, regardless of the brand of vaccine you had for your first two vaccines. If you have had a bad reaction to Pfizer, AstraZeneca can be used instead

Please book for a Pfizer 3rd/booster dose vaccination using the 3rd dose option on HotDoc

 

What should I do now? 

Before your vaccination appointment, you should make sure that your contact and Medicare details are up to date.  

You can also read this factsheet developed by the Australian Government Department of Health for preparing for Covid-19 vaccination, and some tips for being ready for your vaccine here

Take a look over the vaccination consent form, which is provided for your information.  

You should receive an electronic consent form to complete when you book through HotDoc, which is our preferred method.  However, if you are unable to book online, please ask reception for a printed version of the consent form when you arrive for your vaccination appointment.  

Here is a checklist to assist you to get ready for your appointment.

Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:

  • if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from Covid-19
  • if you are waiting for Covid-19 test results, or have tested positive for Covid-19
  • if you are a close contact of someone with Covid-19, or
  • if you are in quarantine.

If you are a new patient to the clinic, it would be helpful if you could bring a Health Summary from your current G.P. with you to your vaccination appointment.

If you have had another vaccine in the 7 days* before your Covid-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment. *There should be a gap of 14 days between live vaccines and a Covid vaccine

An uncommon side effect of the vaccines is swelling of the lymph nodes.  Screening mammograms should be done prior to vaccination or 4-6 weeks after your second dose.

Continue to practice Covid-safe behaviours:  cover your mouth when you cough, keep your distance, wash your hands, get tested and then stay home if you're sick.

Regularly check this page for further instructions.

Cost

While everyone who is living in Australia is funded to receive a vaccine, funding for vaccinations in general practice is limited to those who have a Medicare Card.  If you are ineligible for Medicare, you can receive a vaccine at no cost at other sites.

Bookings can be made through the vaccine clinic finder, or on your phone through the Qld check-in app (you will need to download the latest version).

HealthDirect has more information about how to get vaccinated if you are not eligible for Medicare.

After your vaccination

The conditions of approval for these vaccines include close monitoring of your side effects.  Please see here for some information about vaccine side effects and instructions for what to do after your vaccination.

If you have recently had your first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and are having side effects that you are worried about, please use the vaccine side effect checker, ask your GP, or call 13HEALTH and follow the advice.

QLD Health also has a COVID-19 adverse event following immunisation reporting form which you may access here.

Vaccine certificate

If you need a copy of your Covid-19 vaccination certificate, you can access it:

  • through the Medicare app, your MyGov account, or My Health Record (instructions here)

  • by calling the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 and asking them to post your immunisation history statement

Your digital vaccination certificate can be linked to your Check In Qld app (you'll need the latest version).  Detailed instructions here.

Printed copies of your COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate or international COVID-19 vaccination certificate, can also be used as proof of Covid-19 vaccination
