We’re rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine

We’re pleased to be involved in the COVID-19 vaccination program on behalf of the Australian government. Whether youre an existing patient or youre new to our practice, we can help.

This page is regularly updated as the government medical advice changes.

Receive a vaccine from your doctor

To receive your COVID-19 vaccine (including boosters), simply call us on 9304 0500 and let us know you want to book in for a vaccine.

We’re no longer running vaccine clinics in big groups.

Booster shots now available

We’re now giving COVID-19 booster shots to those aged 16 and over who received their second vaccine dose about three months ago.

We’re also giving a winter booster dose to certain people (e.g. aged 65 or over) if you had your initial booster dose at least four months ago.

Research shows that boosters don’t simply top up immunity – they elevate protection well above the peak level from two doses.

So, it’s very important you get your booster shot.

Read more about boosters at PVH Medical here.

Eligibility and types of vaccines available

We’re offering the Pfizer vaccine for anyone aged 12 or over.

We also have limited supply of the Novavax vaccine for anyone aged 18 or over.

Please have a chat with your doctor if you have any questions about the vaccines.

Vaccines for kids under 12

Children aged 5 to 11 are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. This is a reduced dose of the Pfizer vaccine, followed by another dose about eight weeks later.

At this stage, we won’t be involved in the vaccine roll-out for this age group.

So, if you have kids and are looking to protect them from COVID-19, we encourage you to visit a state vaccination centre instead.

How to book

You can book in for a vaccine by calling 9304 0500.

When we confirm your appointment, we’ll send you a link to a consent form. If you can, please print it, fill it in and bring it with you to your appointment.

It’s important that you only book your vaccination once you’re certain you are ready to have it.

What you should do now

It’s a good idea to get informed about the COVID-19 vaccination.

You can learn more about the vaccine by reading the top 10 questions our doctors are asked. You can also refer to this government website.

If you’re not sure whether you should have the vaccine, we encourage you to talk with your regular GP as soon as possible.

Info about pregnancy

The government has released some information specifically for pregnant women. Chat with us if you have any questions.

Got COVID-19 symptoms?

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, cough, sore throat or runny nose, please visit a testing centre. PVH Medical is not a testing centre.

Got COVID-19?

If you test positive to COVID-19 or if you’ve been told you are a contact, follow the government’s checklist. Make sure you report your result if using a rapid antigen test. And, monitor your symptoms on a daily basis.

You can also refer to the government’s guidelines for testing and isolating if you’re not sure what to do.

We’re here to help

If you’re unsure about anything, make an appointment with your doctor to discuss things.

Let’s all get vaccinated and keep our community safe!
