  • All COVID-19 vaccines given in Australia have passed tests to prove that they are safe and effective.

    The vaccine is free for everyone, and while not mandatory is recommended to help protect you and your family from COVID-19.

    The Central West Hospital and Health Service Vaccination Program will be delivered by trained Immunisation Teams.

    AstraZeneca Vaccine

    Based on current Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) advice, the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine is not recommended for anyone under 60 years of age.

    If you are aged from 18 to 59, you can still go ahead with AstraZeneca vaccination and are recommended to discuss with the Immunisation Team or your GP in order to make an informed decision.

    If you are aged 59 or under and have already received your first dose of COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine without a serious, adverse event, you are safe to book in for your second dose.

    Second-dose AstraZeneca vaccinations

    • to ensure the greatest protection from COVID-19, it is recommended you have the second dose as close as possible to 12 weeks after the first dose.
    • if your first dose was AstraZeneca, your second dose must be the same vaccine.
    • it must be at least 7 days since you had the flu (or other) vaccination.

    Comirnaty (Pfizer) Vaccine

    • Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine is available for everyone aged 12 years and over who hasn't already had AstraZeneca vaccine.
