COVID-19 vaccines are still available to all frontline healthcare workers who have not yet been vaccinated, regardless of their age. You can register online for your COVID-19 vaccine through the public registration system. Everyone who registers online will be offered an mRNA vaccine - either the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
You can also go to a ‘walk-in vaccination clinic’ without an appointment if that's an option at a vaccination centre near you.
As a Healthcare worker (HCW) you will be offered a booster vaccination approximately 6 months after your vaccination course. If you are identified as a HCW on our Covax vaccination system, you will be called for vaccination as you become due for a booster.
Walk-in booster clinics have been arranged for healthcare workers on specific days and times.
If you had COVID-19 since you finished your vaccination course you must wait 6 months after diagnosis before you can get your COVID-19 vaccine booster.
Some healthcare settings may choose to vaccinate their own staff. Pharmacies will be included in the rollout of HCW boosters in the next few weeks.
HCWs aged over 60 are included in the age cohort for booster vaccinations, starting this week (commencing 1 November 2021).
Please note that you can:
How you will be invited for a booster vaccination
- Most HCWs will be invited for their booster at a vaccination centre over the next six weeks.
- These appointments are generated automatically - you do not need to register.
- If you’ve become a HCW since your second vaccine dose, you will be given the opportunity to identify yourself as a HCW and get called for a booster. This facility will be available shortly.
