Forest Hill Family Clinic has been selected to provide the COVID Vaccine. We will be commencing sometime in April. At this stage we will be only given 50 doses per week
The vaccine(s) approved for use in Australia are Pfizer and Astra Zeneca. You can read more about them here: https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/covid-19-vaccines
All the information about the vaccine is publicly available here: https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/covid-19-vaccines. You should start reading and informing yourself about the vaccination there.
Our aim is to vaccinate as many patients as possible in the shortest possible time. Only book when you are ready to have the vaccine. If you are unsure or you have questions about the vaccine, you should visit:
The initial phase 1b vaccine rollout is only for those aged 70 and over, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 55 and over, those aged 18-69 with certain chronic conditions and workers in target groups. To receive the vaccine you will need to provide proof of your eligibility. You can check your eligibility here COVID Vaccine Eligibility Checker
Based on order of priority, we will shortly send out SMS invitations to book. When you receive that invitation, please book quickly as vaccine stocks will be limited. Right now, you can prepare by downloading our booking app so you are ready to book as soon as you receive the invitation.
We will be updating information on our website regularly on foresthillfamilyclinic.com.au
Please do not call reception to enquire about vaccines as we are experiencing large numbers of calls. If you would like to discuss with your doctor, please make an appointment
We look forward to seeing you in the clinic.
The team at Forest Hill Family Clinic
