IMPORTANT: If you are unwell, please delay your appointment
Primary doses (dose 1 and 2)
ATAGI recommends an 8 week dose interval between the primary doses for Pfizer, Moderna and Novavax. This can be reduced to a minimum of 3 weeks for Pfizer or 4 weeks for Moderna for people at high risk of severe COVID-19, in an outbreak or prior to international travel.
If you have confirmed covid-19 please read our covid response page for information about anti-viral treatments
The mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are the preferred booster vaccines and these are the ones that we are offering. Where possible, we will accommodate your preference, however we don’t always have both brands available.
Morningside & Belmont General Practice Clinics will not be administering COVID-19 vaccinations for under 5s or the AstraZeneca and Novavax vaccines. If you are wanting to make bookings for these, it can be done via the Vaccine Clinic Finder: https://www.health.gov.au/resources/apps-and-tools/covid-19-vaccine-clinic-finder
Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:
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 covid vaccine.
Continue to practice Covid-safe behaviours: cover your mouth when you cough, wash your hands, keep your distance, avoid contact with sick people and large crowds, wear a mask, get tested and then stay home if you're sick.
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.
HealthDirect has more information about how to get vaccinated if you are not eligible for Medicare.
The conditions of approval for these vaccines include close monitoring of your side effects. Please see here for some information about vaccine side effects.
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.
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
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
