Vaccination for COVID-19 is now available at Pymble Family Doctors.
COVID-19 vaccination and boosters
Pymble Family Doctors offer both Pfizer and Astra-Zeneca Covid-19 vaccinations for patients with a valid Medicare card.* If you wish to book an appointment please use the online Health Engine link here and scroll to the specific section on COVID-19 vaccinations.
Children aged between 12-15 can also be booked in for Pfizer 1st and 2nd doses.
People aged 18 years and older may now receive a 3rd booster if it is at least three months after receiving their second dose of any of the COVID-19 vaccines registered for use in Australia. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be offered as the booster dose, regardless of the COVID-19 vaccine received for the first or second dose.
*If you do not have a valid Medicare card, you will need to get your vaccine at a State or Commonwealth run clinic.
Plan ahead for two doses
It is important that you receive two doses of your COVID-19 vaccine. There should be at least three weeks between the two doses if you receive the COVID-19 Pfizer [Comirnaty] vaccine; there should be 6-12 weeks between the two doses if you receive the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca. Optimal protection against COVID-19 will not occur until about one to two weeks after your second dose.
You will receive the vaccine as an injection, most commonly into your upper arm muscle. You must remain in the vaccination clinic for observation for at least 15 minutes after vaccination.
Depending on your medical history, you may be asked to wait in the clinic for 30 minutes.
