Registration for COVID-19 vaccines is now open for all people aged 60 to 69. This includes healthcare workers in that age group.
COVID-19 vaccines are still available to all frontline healthcare workers who have not yet been vaccinated, regardless of their age.
If you registered for your vaccine before March 26
We are sending a text message to healthcare workers that registered on the healthcare worker vaccination portal. The text will come from a number ending 425. If you want to schedule an appointment please text YES back to this number. Your nearest vaccination centre will send you an appointment by text.
You will need to bring photographic ID and proof of employment as a frontline healthcare worker. This can be your workplace identification, or a letter that confirms you are a frontline healthcare worker.
If you have already had dose 1 or dose 2 please text NO back to this number. This will not affect any record of previous vaccinations, any scheduled appointments or future vaccination appointments you may have.
If you are not a frontline healthcare worker but registered on the healthcare worker portal, you should text NO back to the number. You will then be able to register for your vaccine when your age group is being called to register. The definition of a frontline healthcare worker is published in this guide: Guidelines for Sequencing and Registration Process for HCW COVID Vaccination (4 pages, 785KB, pdf)
