The outbreak of novel Coronavirus has changed the world & the way we operate. Social distancing, face masks, patient number restrictions, hand sanitiser & sneeze guards are part on the “New Normal” for all of us. Our priority is, as it always was; to care for our patients, staff and local community in a safe environment. To support this, we have made important changes at Amtan Medical adhering to State & Federal Government regulations in this evolving environment.

COVID-19 Vaccines are here. Find out what this means for you and how Amtan can help.

This page is to help guide you to the COVID-19 Vaccine, as approved by the Government of Australia, following the schedule. Find out below if you are eligible for the vaccine and how to receive it.

How is the COVID-19 vaccine given?

The vaccine is given via an injection into your upper arm by a health professional who has been trained in giving the COVID-19 vaccine. To get the full benefit of the vaccine you will need two injections and boosters (based on health guidelines). It’s really important you have your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and Boosters (where applicable) to ensure you have maximum immunity.

  • COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people aged 5 years or older to protect against COVID-19. For most people, a primary vaccination course consists of 2 doses.
  • A third primary dose is recommended for people aged 5 years or older with severe immunocompromise. See considerations for special populations: people who are immunocompromised.
  • A single booster dose is recommended for people aged 16 years or older, 3 months after the primary course.
  • An additional booster dose is recommended for people at risk of severe COVID-19,  Refer to Booster Information below or ask your GP.

COVID-19 vaccines

Everyone 5 years and older can now book an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine. An additional booster dose, known as the fourth dose, is now available to people 30 years and older. This may be a fifth dose for some people. If you have had COVID-19, wait at least 3 months before getting your next dose

But there are things you can do to protect your own health. Most importantly, stay up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccinations.
