COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION
The Clinic Complete Family Medical and Skin Centre is pleased to advise that we are an approved vaccination provider for COVID-19 vaccines. We are happy to help provide COVID-19 immunisation for our local area and wider community.
When can I get my Covid-19 vaccine?
COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out to people in phases, with those most at risk receiving their vaccinations first.
To find out if you are eligible to receive the vaccine now, visit https://covidvaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker.
You can then make a booking to receive your vaccine.
Booking your Covid-19 vaccination appointment
When it is your turn to get vaccinated, you can call us at (03) 9741 1200 or come in to the clinic to book your appointments.
Make sure you book an appointment for your first and second doses of the vaccine. Please call us if you need to confirm what the timing should be between the appointments.
Getting ready for your appointment
Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:
• if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
• if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
• if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or
• if you are in quarantine.
If you have had another vaccine in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.
If you cannot make it to your vaccination appointment, please contact us to arrange a new appointment.
After receiving any vaccine, you may experience minor side effects. Most side effects are mild and last no more than a few days.
Common reactions to COVID-19 vaccinations include:
• a sore arm
• low level fever
• muscle pain
• tiredness, or
• joint pain.
You can use the COVID-19 vaccine side effects symptom checker if you have concerns about any symptoms after your vaccine. Alternatively, you can give us a call at (03) 9741 1200 if you would like to speak to your doctor for specific advice about side effects.
The checker is also available through the National Coronavirus Helpline, 1800 020 080, 24 hours a day.
The Department of Health has developed resources about what you can expect after your vaccination.
You can access these resources here:
