Before your vaccination appointment

We want you to know, we are taking every precaution to maintain the safety and optimal health of the patients and staff of each practice.

If you have any cold or flu symptoms you must present a negative Covid-19 result within three (3) days to attend a face to face appointment, this includes receiving the COVID-19 Vaccination. Please call and speak to our reception team if you have any questions.


After receiving a Covid-19 vaccination

As with any vaccine, some people may experience side effects such as a sore arm, headache or fever. These side effects are usually mild and don’t last for long, but please tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effects that worry you.

Even after receiving the vaccine, you must still follow public health precautions as required in your state or territory to stop the spread of COVID-19 including:

  • Keep your distance – stay at least 1.5 metres away from other people

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitiser

  • Wear a mask, if your state or territory has advised you should

  • Stay home if you are unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms and arrange to get a COVID-19 test.

You may refer to the COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effect Checker for more information or directly report suspected side effects to NPS Medicine wise on 1300 134 237.
