Book your vaccination

**UPDATE 6 JULY 2021**

SCHS are not taking any further registrations for the Pfizer vaccination until further notice. 

Since the roll-out of the Pfizer sub-hub community registrations for the vaccination through SCHS have exceeded 2400.

SCHS are experiencing a far greater community demand than available supply.  The Pfizer registration link is now closed to the public until further notice.

If you are travelling to a region outside of Sunraysia that has a Pfizer clinic,  we’d encourage you to consider exploring the option of making a booking at your destination.

If you’re a patient of Lime Medical Clinic or Tristar Medical Group, please speak to your GP about your Pfizer vaccination options with them.  Other local GP services will be providing Pfizer in the near future.

Please follow this link for alternative Pfizer clinics: Australian Department of Health website (www.health.gov.au).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • If you registered before 6 July 2021, these changes DO NOT apply to you and you will be contacted for an appointment in due course.
  • If you have an appointment booked or are due for your next dose, these changes DO NOT apply to you.
  • Please email covid@schs.com.au with any questions.

** UPDATE 18 JUNE 2021**

The ATAGI advised on 18 June 2021 that the AstraZeneca vaccine is recommended for those 60 years and older.  What this may mean for you:

🔶 If you’ve had your first AstraZeneca dose, you can proceed with your second dose. The likelihood of a severe reaction decreases significantly if there was no clotting reaction to the first dose. Always speak to your GP if you have any concerns.
🔶 If you’re under 60 years old and have ALREADY booked with SCHS to have your FIRST dose you will be offered Pfizer on the day of your appointment, so there is no change to your current booking.
🔶 If you had an AstraZeneca appointment booked with your GP which has been cancelled, you can register your interest for the Pfizer vaccination via the links below. You will then be added to the wait-list for an appointment.

COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary and free. When it is your turn to get vaccinated you can register and/or book your appointments online.
