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 you’re an existing patient or you’re new to our practice, we can help.

People in Phase 1b (as defined by the government here) will receive the first invitations. You can also check your eligibility here.

If you’re an existing patient

We’ll progressively be sending out invitations to patients who are eligible for the vaccine at this stage. The invitations will be generated randomly, and sent by SMS where possible.

We have a limited number of vaccines to give each week, and we ask you to wait your turn.

If you’re a new patient

If you haven’t been to PVH Medical before, and you’re in Phase 1b, please fill in this form. Once vaccine supply is available, we’ll send you an invitation to make a booking.

Special vaccine clinics

We’ll be giving vaccines as quickly and efficiently as we can. This means we’ll be giving vaccines in special clinics in a group setting.

It will be fast moving, a bit of fun, and carried out on the weekend. At this stage, you won’t be able to get your vaccine from your GP during a standard appointment.

How bookings will work

You can only book an appointment once you’ve received an invitation. You can then make your appointment online.

Please note that you must book via our website, not the Appointuit booking app.

If you can’t book online, you may call us after 2pm on weekdays to book.

It’s important that you only book for your vaccination once you are 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 and have your questions answered on the 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.

Also, please:

  • Ensure we have your mobile phone number on file (if you’re an existing patient). This can be a family member’s number if you don’t have your own
  • Don’t call us to be put on a list or be vaccinated now. You’ll receive an SMS from us when it’s your turn.

Information about the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine

Generally, if you haven’t already received a first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, then the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is preferred in adults aged under 50.

You can read more about the AstraZeneca vaccine here.

Any questions?

Refer to the government information above or make an appointment to discuss things with your doctor.

Remember, only book an appointment to have the vaccine once you receive an invitation and you’ve decided to have it.

Let’s work together to get this done!
