Frequently Asked Questions:

How can I find out when I will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine?

To check when you will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, use our Vaccine Eligibility Checker here. If you are currently eligible, you will be able to view vaccination clinics and book an appointment online or via phone. If you are not yet eligible, you will be able to register your interest so that you can be notified when you are able to book.

Do I have to use the Eligibility Checker in order to book an appointment?

The Eligiblity Checker is a helpful tool to help you find out if you are currently eligible to book.

The checker will guide you through a simple way to find and book vaccine appointments, or help you register to be notified if you are part of a later phase. If you prefer to book appointments directly at a participating GP or Commonwealth state vaccination clinic, you can contact them directly to do so.

What happens if there are no clinics or appointments in my area?

A list of Commonwealth vaccintion clinics, participating General Practices, and state and territory vaccination clinics will be made available as they come online. In the early stages of Phase 1B, general practice start dates will be staggered and dosage allocation will be dependent on vaccine availability. Over 1,000 GP clinics will be able to start COVID-19 vaccinations from Monday, 22 March, with that figure climbing to 4,000 GP clinics by the end of April as part of Phase 1B.

This controlled and sequenced commencement process ensures an efficient and equitable distribution of vaccines across the country, and ensures that as many individuals as possible within the 1B cohort are able to receive the vaccine from their own doctor. Every Australian will have the opportunity to be vaccinated and we thank you for your patience as we commence the rollout.
