Book your vaccination appointment
COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary and free.
Make sure you book an appointment for your first and second doses. Please give us a call if you need to confirm what the timing should be between the appointments.
Getting ready for your vaccination
Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:
• if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
• if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
• if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or
• if you are in quarantine.
If you have had another vaccine in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.
If you cannot make it to your vaccination appointment, please contact us to arrange a new appointment.

• Stay informed about local restrictions
