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.

Special vaccine clinics

We’re giving COVID-19 vaccines (including boosters) in special clinics in a group setting, as quickly and efficiently as we can.

At this stage, you won’t be able to get your vaccine from your GP during a standard appointment.

Booster shots now available

We’re now giving COVID-19 booster shots to those who received their second vaccine dose about three 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 for our vaccine clinics

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

We’re also offering the AstraZeneca vaccine for anyone aged 18 or over.

The booster is Pfizer for everyone, regardless of which vaccine you had initially.

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

Vaccines for kids under 12

At this stage, we’re not giving COVID-19 vaccines to children aged under 12. This is due to resourcing limitations.

Please take your child to a state vaccination centre instead. You can find your nearest centre here.

How to book

You can book in for a vaccine clinic 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 AstraZeneca

There’s some information you need to know about the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. You can read more about that here.

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!
