The Australian Government has announced that everyone over 5 in Australia will be offered a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine they offer will be voluntary and free.
Last Updated 3 March 2022.
DELIVERY OF THE COVID-19 VACCINE
COVID-19 vaccines are currently being delivered through a number of state-run vaccination clinics, hospital hubs, GP respiratory clinics, General Practices, and pharmacies that meet specific requirements.
PLEASE NOTE: Currently, none of our clinics (including Centre Clinic, PRONTO! & Equinox) are vaccination sites. We will update this page if that changes.
