Getting ready for your appointment
There is a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines in Australia and globally. This means, people who have the highest risk of severe COVID-19 and/or exposure to the virus will receive the vaccine first. Other people will receive vaccine over time.
Find out who will be prioritised for vaccination by visiting www.health.gov.au/covid19-vaccines.
You should NOT attend a COVID-19 vaccination appointment if you:
- Have any questions, queries or need information regarding the Vaccine – YOU NEED TO BOOK A CONSULT OR TELEHEALTH CONSULT WITH YOUR GP FIRST.
- Do not have a Phase 1B Declaration Form from your employer (https://www.health.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/2021/03/covid-19-vaccination-eligibility-declaration-form.pdf)
- Are unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19.
- Are awaiting COVID-19 test results.
- Have tested positive with COVID-19 and you are in isolation.
- Are in quarantine.
- Are a close contact of someone with COVID-19.
You should bring the following to your COVID-19 vaccination appointment:
• Photo ID
• Medicare card
• Employee ID, if you are getting a COVID-19 vaccine because of your occupation.
• Information about any of your medical conditions, allergies, bleeding disorders or immunocompromise (i.e. weakened immune system),
• Information about any medications you are taking.
• Information about any previous COVID-19 vaccine received (vaccine brand and date of vaccination).
• Information about any reactions you have had to any vaccine in the past.
Tell your immunisation provider if you have any medical conditions or if you are taking any medications.
Especially make sure to tell them if you:
• Have had anaphylaxis (a type of severe allergic reaction) to any substance, or if you have an adrenaline autoinjector (e.g. EpiPen).
• Have had a reaction to any vaccine in the past.
• Have a bleeding disorder or are receiving anticoagulant therapy (a blood thinner).
