    Getting ready for your appointment

    You should NOT attend a COVID-19 vaccination appointment if you:

    • are unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
    • are awaiting COVID-19 test results
    • have tested positive with COVID-19 and you are in isolation
    • are in quarantine
    • are a close contact of someone with COVID-19.


    If you fall into any of the above categories, check with your immunisation provider. You may need to reschedule your appointment for vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines are not effective at treating COVID-19.

    If you have had another vaccine in the 7 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, tell your immunisation provider. Your immunisation provider may ask you to reschedule your appointment.

    You are not required to test for COVID-19 before vaccination if you do not have a fever or any respiratory symptoms.
