COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID vaccines

The health professionals at Family Doctors Plus are participating in the COVID vaccine rollout. They offer Pfizer Comirnaty COVID vaccines for ages 5 and above. They do not stock other vaccine brands and can’t guarantee vaccine availability as clinics are dependent on delivery from Government stockpiles.

Please make a booking for your COVID vaccine, but please don’t call for a booking, instead book online through:

The team do not currently offer vaccines for children less than 5 years of age. If you need to access a COVID vaccine for this age group you can find participating vaccination sites using the Department  of Health’s COVID Vaccine Clinic Finder.

The phone lines must be kept open for people who have medical issues so we request you book your vaccine appointment online if possible.

Please note you can have a COVID vaccine at the same time as an Influenza vaccine. You can book for both vaccines online through the link above.

Timing of administration of other vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines can be co-administered (that is, given on the same day) with an influenza vaccine. Studies demonstrate the safety and immunogenicity of co-administration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines.

You can find other COVID vaccine clinics online through the eligibility checker on, or through the Qld Health Website.  If you don’t have a valid Medicare Card we request you book through Qld Health or a GP respiratory clinic. You can find these via:

Frequently asked questions

The latest recommendation from ATAGI (Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation) from their statement released on 27/4/22:

COVID-19 vaccines can be co-administered (that is, given on the same day) with an influenza vaccine. Studies demonstrate the safety and immunogenicity of co-administration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines.

COVID-19 vaccines can also be co-administered with other vaccines if required.

This includes routine childhood and adolescent vaccines. The benefits of ensuring timely vaccination and maintaining high vaccine uptake outweigh any potential risks associated with immunogenicity, local adverse reactions or fever.

There is limited evidence on the safety and effectiveness of co-administering COVID-19 vaccines at the same time as other vaccines. Providers need to balance the opportunistic need for co-administration with the benefits of giving the vaccines on separate visits. There is the potential for an increase in mild to moderate adverse events when more than one vaccine is given at the same time. Co-administration or near administration (e.g. within days) with another vaccine may also make it challenging to attribute potential adverse events. Providers should ensure that parents/guardians of young children receiving COVID-19 vaccines are aware of the increased potential for local reactions.

Please notify us if you are sick with any symptoms (fever, runny nose, sore throat, cough, vomiting, diarrhoea) so we can rebook your appointment. As per ATAGI-as with all vaccines, COVID-19 vaccination should be deferred in people who are acutely unwell.

You will need to bring:

  • ID-driver’s licence or passport
  • Current Medicare Card (if you don’t have one, you will need to register with one of the health hubs for your vaccination. General Practices can only provide vaccinations to people with Medicare cards)
  • Pen
  • Please wear a short sleeve shirt to allow us access to your upper arm for the vaccine
  • Please follow the signs and register with our receptionist
  • You will need to be observed for 15 to 30 minutes depending on your medical history. Please allow sufficient time for your appointment. We cannot proceed with the vaccine if you are unable to be observed for up to 30min afterwards.
  • You may need to wear a face mask depending on the risk of COVID in the community at the time

You will be able to access proof of vaccination from:

We request you access your vaccination history by these means rather than calling our receptionists. Please allow 48 hours for your vaccine details to be uploaded.

For more information on the COVID vaccine please go to or speak with your doctor.

COVID vaccines and the vaccination consultation are free as they are subsidised by the Australian Government. Usual fees apply for other vaccines (eg Influenza vaccine) and consultation types.

While everyone who is living in Australia is funded to receive a vaccine, funding for vaccinations in general practice is limited to those who have a valid Medicare Card. If you are not eligible for Medicare or don’t have a valid Medicare Card, you can receive a vaccine at no cost at Commonwealth funded GP Respiratory Clinics (the list is here or at (yet to be established) State funded vaccine clinics.
