COVID-19 IMMUNISATION

COVID-19 Information

The Australian government has committed to providing the COVID-19 vaccine for free to all Australian citizens, permanent residents and temporary visa-holders.

Pharmacies will be involved in the National Vaccine roll out plan for COVID-19 vaccination from stage 2a of the strategy, believed to be from May 2021. Chemist Warehouse prides itself on providing a safe and convenient vaccination service and commit to supporting the Australian government and public in any way we can.

The first phases of the roll-out strategy will be for high-risk workers, elderly population (greater than 70 years old) and other high-risk individuals. Stage 2a will include adults aged over 50 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged 18-54 and other critical and high-risk workers. The full details of the National rollout strategy can be found here.

It is important to note that Australia has some of the toughest safety standards in the world. All vaccines approved for use in Australia undergo robust scientific testing and analysis by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to ensure they are effective and safe.

It is currently not recommended to get both flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time. It is advised to get your flu shot when it becomes available to stop the overlap with your COVID-19 vaccine. You will need to wait at least 2 weeks in between your flu shot and COVID vaccine.
