COVID 19 VACCINE
We are a COVID-19 vaccination provider:
Richlands Medical Centre is pleased to advise that we are an approved vaccination provider for the COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccine. We do both adult and children (5 - 11 years) Pfizer vaccinations. We are happy to help provide COVID-19 immunisation for our local area and wider community.
Checking when you can receive your COVID-19 vaccine:
To find out when you are eligible to receive the vaccine, visit https://covidvaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker. This will tell you which phase of the rollout you are in.
Getting ready for your appointment:
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 7 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.
