Vaccine Information Hub

The best vaccine is the one you can get right now. Vaccines prevent serious illness, hospitalisation and death. That protects you. Vaccines may also reduce transmission. Less illness and less transmission protects our health care system and our community. 

Vaccination is free

You do not need a Medicare card. Vaccines are free for everyone. You do not need to be a permanent resident or Australian citizen. 

Eligibility

Everyone 12 and older is eligible to be vaccinated with one of the available vaccines. 

Everyone aged 12-59 is eligible for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

Book your appointment at state-run vaccine hubs.

If you need to get a first or second vaccine dose, you can get it at pharmacies or GPs and many pharmacies have walk-up appointments, so you don’t need to pre-book. 

Many high priority groups are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine, whatever their age. This includes disability workers, aged care workers and transport workers.

Everyone aged 60 and over who is not part of a priority cohort is eligible for the Astra-Zeneca vaccine. Find out more.
