How do I schedule a COVID-19 vaccination, and what if I need to change or move my appointment?
A way to freedom is being carved out in Australia, but there is a catch: in order to take advantage of it, you will need to have all of your vaccinations.
The Australian states of New South Wales and Victoria are both moving forward with a national plan to open up to people who have received both doses of the vaccine; for some people, this could happen as soon as the following month.
"We are seeing that [vaccination rate] slightly decline," emphasized the Premier of New South Wales on Wednesday, Gladys Berejiklian, when she announced that dozens of stay-at-home restrictions would be eased shortly after 70% of people aged 16 and older were fully vaccinated against the disease.
"We really need to call upon anybody who hasn't had any doses to come forward and get their first dose, but to make sure that you come forward for your second dose as soon as you can as well," the doctor said. "We really need to call upon anybody who hasn't had any doses to come forward and get their first dose." "
Here is where you can get caught up on all the most recent COVID-19 news.
But what if you're having trouble figuring out how to book your flight? And what happens if you want to move up the time of your appointment?
Simply select the appropriate state or territory from the list below by clicking on the appropriate link.
To begin, let's get a few things straight:
- Pfizer recommends waiting anywhere from three to six weeks between the first and second doses of the vaccine.
- It is recommended that doses of AstraZeneca be administered at least 12 weeks apart in settings where there is no active outbreak.
- In situations where there is a risk of an outbreak, the period of time that should pass between the first and second doses of AstraZeneca should be between four and eight weeks.
To begin, you will need to answer a few questions using the vaccine eligibility checker that is provided by the federal government (you can find that right here).
After that has been completed, you will be taken to a list of clinics in your area, which you will have the option to narrow down using the terms "nearest" and "earliest available."
Simply contact the service provider you originally scheduled the appointment with if you need to make any adjustments to it or cancel it altogether.
For instance, if you have previously registered to receive the shot at a vaccination clinic that is run by the government (see below), you will be required to log into your account by way of the NSW Health Vaccination Portal.
If you have made your appointment through your local general practitioner or your local health district, you should contact either of those places first if you need to reschedule it.
In addition to this, a list of walk-in vaccination clinics in your area can be found on the website.
Through the online vaccine booking portal that the government provides (which can be found here), you will be able to schedule an appointment.
After you have successfully created an account, you will be directed to a list of clinics after being prompted to provide some personal information about yourself.
Do you need to make a modification or cancel your appointment? Simply navigate back to the homepage of the portal (the option will be located next to the one that allows you to schedule an appointment).
At this time, walk-in appointments are not being taken at any of Victoria's vaccination centers.
To begin, you will need to register to get vaccinated; instructions for doing so can be found right here. You will receive an email invitation to schedule an appointment as soon as those appointments become available in your area.
You will need to log in to the Queensland Health Vaccine Booking System in order to reschedule your appointment if you have already been scheduled to receive the vaccination (regardless of whether this will be your first or second dose).
That can be accomplished if you:
- Simply by following the link provided in the invitation email.
- Enter your email address as well as your password (the one that you used when you initially registered for the online booking system).
- Click the button that says "I need to change my existing vaccination appointment" after you have chosen your name.
You can find clinics all over the state that are offering walk-in appointments by consulting the online vaccination location map that Queensland Health has made available. Of course, if you don't like to wait, you don't have to.
You will need to sign up for MyDHR and verify that you are eligible to get vaccinated before you can book an appointment online at one of the mass vaccination clinics that are being held throughout the ACT. This information can be found here.
If you'd rather give us a call, get your shot at a doctor's office or pharmacy, or don't have a Medicare card, the government of the ACT has compiled a helpful list of links and phone numbers to get you started.
You have the option to reschedule or cancel your appointment in the event that you will not be able to keep it.
- entering your credentials into your MyDHR account
- using the form provided by the ACT government for cancellations (which can be found here),
- dial the number 02 5124 7700 to book an appointment for an ACT COVID-19 vaccination.
On this very page, you'll find a list of the locations of various vaccination clinics.
In a manner similar to that of New South Wales, you will be required to complete the vaccine eligibility checker provided by the federal government (you can locate this tool right here).
Once that's done, you can view clinics in your area, with the option to filter by 'nearest' or 'earliest available'
You can also find a list of appointment availabilities at the COVID-19 vaccination clinics that are located in the state's metropolitan areas.
You will be required to contact the service provider that you originally booked your appointment with in order to modify or cancel your appointment.
For instance, if you have visited or intend to visit your general practitioner (GP), they will be the first person to contact.
To schedule an appointment online with VaccineWA, you will first need to register for an account with them (instructions for doing so can be found on this page).

You can log in to your VaccinateWA account at any time to manage your booking (you'll find that on the dashboard). This will allow you to make changes to your appointment in the event that you are unable to keep it or wish to bring it forward.
If this is your first time registering with 13COVID, an account will have been set up for you automatically (you can learn more about this by clicking right here).
