COVID-19: vaccines and Council support

Vaccine information, plus Council is here to help with a dedicated hotline and support.


Free COVID-19 vaccines are available to everyone aged 5 years and over in Australia.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends a third dose for everyone aged 16 years and over. If you had your second vaccination 3 or more months ago, you’re due for your third dose. Choosing to get vaccinated helps protect our family, our friends and our community.

Where do I get a vaccine?

  • At a GP or pharmacy.
  • Call the Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398 to book an appointment at a vaccination clinic or an at-home appointment. For an interpreter, press 0.
  • Visit site and use the online booking system to find an appointment near you.

If you have any concerns about getting a COVID-19 vaccine, talk to a doctor or healthcare provider.
