COVID-19 Vaccine Northcote

Northcote Medical is an approved provider of the COVID-19 Astra Zeneca vaccine.

We do not have supplies of the Pfizer vaccine.

Please refer to this page for the latest information about the COVID-19 vaccine.

The vaccine will protect patients, including our most vulnerable communities from exposure to COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is both safe and effective, helping to prevent death and serious illness.

COVID19 Vaccine eligibility is determined by the Government.

Or, you can make an appointment to speak to a doctor to determine your eligibility – book an appointment here.

It is an Australian Government requirement that Northcote Medical checks the eligibility of each patient on the day of your appointment. Remember, just because you make an appointment, does not mean you will receive the vaccine, only those eligible on the day will be immunised.

Once you’ve confirmed your eligibility, book your COVID 19 vaccine appointment by calling us.

When you book your COVID-19 immunisation, you will book two appointments. There are two injections required to provide you with full protection from coronavirus.

Attending your COVID-19 Vaccine appointment

On the day:

  1. When you attend your appointment, your immunisation nurse or a doctor will provide your injection. This is not an appointment with your doctor.
  2. Your nurse will check your eligibility and obtain your consent to administer the vaccination. If, on the day of your booking, you are deemed ineligible for the vaccine, we will not be able to administer your immunisation.
  3. Our team will confirm your paperwork and complete your immunisation.
  4. For your health and wellbeing, you will need to stay in our waiting area for 15 minutes after your injection. There will be a dedicated waiting area set up for the COVID-19 vaccine

Frequently asked questions about COVID-19 Vaccines

Is there a cost?

There is no cost to receive your COVID-19 vaccine when using our clinic.

Can I have my Flu Shot at the same time?

No. We are not currently providing COVID-19 and Flu Shots at the same time. You will need to make an additional appointment for your Flu Shot. Covid and flu shots on the same day are prohibited worldwide.

Can I have the COVID-19 vaccine if I am pregnant?

Generally, this is not recommended. However, some patients are at higher risk, speak with your GP directly to help make this decision.
