Covid Vaccine Clinic - Surfers Paradise - Chevron Advanced Medical

Covid Vaccine Clinic - Surfers Paradise

Chevron Advanced Medical is participating in the roll out of the Covid-19 vaccines on the Gold Coast.

The Covid vaccination clinic is bulk billed for all eligible patients with Medicare. 

For Pfizer, two doses will be required, 3 weeks apart. Everyone over the age of 12 are eligible for Pfizer from September 2021. A third dose is now recommended 6 months after your second dose.

For AstraZeneca, two doses are required, 6 to 12 weeks apart. A third dose is now recommended 6 months after your second dose.

Please note that our Covid vaccination clinic will only be administering the Covid vaccine. If you require scripts or attention to your other medical issues, you must make a separate appointment in our regular clinic. 


UPDATE: March 2022 - Winter booster

Dose 4 is now recommended for (1) all adults aged 65 years and over; (2) all residents of aged care and disability facilities; (3) people aged over 16 years who are immunocompromised; (4) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over.  

This winter booster can be given 4 months after the 3rd dose, or 4 months after contracting Covid-19.


Paediatric Pfizer vaccinations

Our paediatric Pfizer vaccine clinic for children aged 5 to 11 years old will be run on Wednesday afternoons. The paediatric Pfizer vaccine is a lower dose than the normal Pfizer vaccine. Children aged over 12 years old should book the normal Pfizer vaccine.

Do you have Moderna? No, mainly the community pharmacies will be administering Moderna. 

I got Dose 1 and 2 of AstraZeneca. Can I get Dose 3 Pfizer? Yes.

I've had 2 doses of covid vaccines, how do I access my vaccination card? If you log in to mygov, there will be a vaccination letter/card from the Australian government after your second dose.
