COVID-19 vaccine update

COVID-19 vaccine update

From Monday 19th July to Sunday 1st August 2021, all people with disability, their carers, and disability workers can get a COVID-19 vaccine at any state-run vaccination clinic without an appointment.  

This includes any person aged 16 years and over, including those in phase 1a and 1b, that fit this criteria. 

How to get your vaccine 

If you are 16 to 60 years old, you will receive the Pfizer vaccine. People aged 60 and over will receive the AstraZeneca vaccine.  

Disability workers will need to show evidence of their employment when getting the vaccine. This includes a photo ID, payslip, or letter from an employer. This is required in order for you to receive the vaccine. 

People with disability and their carers are encouraged to bring documentation to show their eligibility. This can include an official letter, medical records, an NDIS plan, or an image of your NDIS portal. 

Vaccination clinics

Not all clinics offer both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines, so please check that the clinic offers the vaccine you’re after before attending. Locations and operating hours for metro clinics are included below. Go here for information about regional clinics.

When you arrive at the vaccination clinic go to the priority lane. If this is not available, let a staff member know that you are a person with disability, a carer, or a disability worker.  

Be aware that during busy periods you may need to queue for a short time. It is advised to arrive at least an hour before closing time as you may be asked to return another day if the clinic is too busy.  

From the 2nd August people with disability, their carers, and disability workers can still get a priority vaccine by appointment. This can be done by registering with the VaccinateWA or calling 13 COVID (13 26843). Once registered, you will be notified of when the next available vaccine time slot is. 

Aged care workers also have priority access to vaccines at any clinic if they’re unable to book an appointment for their first vaccine before mid-September. 

Vaccines are one of the key ways to keep yourself, your family, and the community safe from COVID-19.
