Local GPs join the Phase 1B COVID-19 vaccine rollout

More than 1,000 general practices around Australia will join the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

Services will come online from 22 March and progressively increase in number to more than 4,000 by the end of April – as part of Phase 1B of Australia’s COVID-19 vaccine program.

Phase 1B includes vulnerable groups, such as older people and people with certain underlying medical conditions.

No-one is better placed to support these people than the local doctor.

Australians eligible for Phase 1B will be able to find a vaccination provider through the new national vaccination information and location service, at the Department of Health website.

Appointments on the service finder will increase as general practices establish their systems and vaccine supply. More appointments will become available as more clinics come on-board.

People can still book their vaccine appointments directly at a participating general practice – as they do now, for instance, to get a seasonal flu vaccine.
