COVID-19 vaccination will commence on Tue 23 March at Newstead Medical for those eligible for the Phase 1b rollout.
Existing patients can book online if they meet the eligibility requirements (as per the Department of Health people with a specified medical condition need to provide proof of eligibility via My Health record, health professional referral or a declaration form), and new patients will need to phone to make an appointment.
If you are unable to make an appointment online, please call us after 9:30am to keep the lines free for those requiring urgent medical care.
We’re only being supplied with 400 vaccines/week and we know demand will be higher than this, so please be patient, retain social distancing and be assured that Tasmania and Australia will have enough vaccine to fully cover everyone. See here to check you eligibility.
