Getting your vaccine

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.

Booster vaccination

As a Healthcare worker (HCW) you will be offered a booster vaccination approximately 3 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 were vaccinated, you should get your booster dose at least 3 months after your positive test result. Bring photo ID and proof of your employment as a healthcare worker.

    Some healthcare settings may choose to vaccinate their own staff.

    You can get your COVID-19 booster vaccine at a local participating pharmacy. Find a pharmacy offering COVID-19 booster vaccines to healthcare workers. You will need to contact your pharmacy in advance to make an appointment.

    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.

    COVID-19 vaccine support contact
