Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, and others, against COIVD-19. All people aged 5 and over are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine on the Gold Coast. You can book an appointment to get a COVID-19 vaccination at a GP, a local pharmacy, a Kalwun health clinic or GP-led Respiratory Clinic. You can see all the places you can get a COVID-19 vaccination below.
You are eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose if you:
Boosters are recommended to maintain immunity against COVID-19.
Many vulnerable people may be house bound or have other obstacles or health conditions that prevent them from attending a vaccination hub, clinic or pharmacy.
GCPHN are partnering with vaccination service providers to coordinate referrals to receive a COVID-19 vaccination home visit for these vulnerable people in our community.
Complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Inreach Referral form to create a referral for yourself or someone else and a vaccination service provider will contact you to discuss a home visit.
You can read more about how to organise a COVID-19 vaccination at home in the Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine in your Home Factsheet.
All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 5 and over are able to access a COVID-19 vaccine.
Vaccinations are available at your local Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service, Commonwealth vaccination clinics, participating general practices, and state and territory clinics. Vaxzeria (AstraZeneca) is also available at participating pharmacies.
See above local vaccination options to find your nearest vaccination clinic.
The Comirnaty (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be safe for pregnant women and their babies.
Pregnant women have a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and their babies have a higher risk of being born prematurely. Vaccination is the best way to reduce these risks.
The Comirnaty (Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccine is also safe for new and breastfeeding mums and their babies.
Studies have shown it is unlikely that any of the vaccine would be passed on to the baby through breastmilk, and if a small amount did, it is extremely unlikely to have any effect on your baby. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, loved ones and your community against COVID-19 and save lives.
Speak to your midwife or doctor about getting vaccinated at any stage of your pregnancy, if you are a new mum and have any concerns, or see the above options to register for an appointment.
Children aged 5 to 11 years can now receive their free COVID-19 vaccine. It’s the best way to protect them your family and community.
All vaccines are thoroughly tested before use and reduce a child’s chances of getting sick.
Talk to your GP pharmacist or healthcare professional if you have questions.
COVID-19 vaccines are free for everyone in Australia, even if you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident. This includes people without a Medicare card, overseas visitors, international students, migrant workers and asylum seekers.
