GREAT OCEAN ROAD HEALTH
– VACCINATION BOOKINGS
How to Book
Online bookings are a two-step process:
Step 1: Book appointment – click on either the ‘Lorne’ or ‘Apollo Bay’ button above. This is where you will choose your time and date.
Step 2: If you are a new patient to the practice, an email will be sent to complete the pre-registration process. You will need your Medicare card details for this step.
Completing both these steps will speed up the registration process on the day of vaccination.
The TGA has approved 2 vaccines for use in Australia, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine. This means these vaccines have met the TGA’s rigorous standards for safety, quality and efficacy. It will be free to all Australian residents.
If you are unable to attend your appointment, please call Lorne Medical Centre on 5289 4333 or Apollo Bay Medical Centre on 5237 8595.
2nd vaccine dose
When you arrive for you first dose, a second dose appointment will be made for you by clinic staff and provided to you.
3rd vaccine dose
Third doses are available to eligible community members who are severely immunocompromised. To receive a 3rd dose, please bring a letter from your GP that confirms your eligibility or book to see one of our GP’s prior to attendance for vaccination. This information will be updated over the coming months, when the three dose is rolled out to our community.
The booster dose is available to anyone aged 18 and over who had their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine more than four months ago. A COVID-19 booster helps prevent waning immunity (loss of protection) against COVID-19. Eligible people will receive the Pfizer vaccine as their booster dose. They can safely get this Pfizer dose regardless of which COVID-19 vaccine they received for their initial doses.
