COVID vaccinations

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if any members are travelling between states in the near future, or far from home, and have to organise their COVID vaccinations somewhere other than home.  We will have had our first jabs here at home in SA, but in June, when the second is due, we plan to be far from home.  Probably QLD.

Anyone had similar queries?

OK, from another forum (Caravaners forum) where a member there pretty much asked the Federal Government responsible agency the same question.  He got a response which said: 


"Thank you for contacting the Australian Government Department of Health.

You don’t have to get your second dose at the same location. This includes if you are travelling — even in a different state.

Your first dose of the vaccine will be recorded in the Australian Immunisation Register, so your vaccination provider will be able check which vaccine you received (to make sure your second dose is the same) and when you received that first dose (to make sure the recommended time has passed).

To be fully vaccinated, you must have two doses of the same vaccine, given at the appropriate dosing schedule.
If you get the Pfizer vaccine, you'll need 2 doses, administered 21 days apart
If you get the AstraZeneca vaccine, you'll need 2 doses, administered 4 to 12 weeks apart

If you received a COVID-19 vaccine while you were overseas, only a recognised vaccination provider in Australia can add your details to the Australian Immunisation Register.

You will need to provide your vaccination documents in English. If they are not in English, you will need to get them translated.

You can keep up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccine developments on the Australian Department of Health website, including priority groups and who will receive the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and how the COVID-19 vaccines will be distributed.

You can use the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility checker to find out when you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

You can also:
Download the official Government ‘Coronavirus Australia’ app in the Apple app store or Google Play; or
Join the WhatsApp channel on iOS or Android.

If you need to speak to someone, the National Coronavirus Helpline is also available on 1800 020 080. It operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Kind regards,

COVID-19 Vaccine Enquiries Team"
