Covid Vaccine Clinic - Surfers Paradise

UPDATE 8 APRIL 2021:

  • The Pfizer vaccine is preferred over AstraZeneca in people aged under 50 years.
  • Unfortunately, the Pfizer vaccine is currently not accessible in general practices and respiratory clinics.
  • If you are under 50yo and already had your 1st dose of AstraZeneca vaccine, you can be safely given your 2nd dose if you did not experience any serious adverse events.
  • Remember to report any adverse effects to the NPS Adverse Medicine Events line on 1300 134 237.
  • If you are under 50yo, you should only be given the AstraZeneca vaccine where the benefits clearly outweigh the risks.

Chevron Advanced Medical is participating in the roll out of the Covid-19 vaccines on the Gold Coast. We have temporarily paused all online and telephone bookings for the covid vaccine due to limited supply. We will reopen bookings in the coming weeks.

The Covid vaccination clinic is bulk billed for all eligible patients with Medicare. 2 doses will be required, between 4 to 12 weeks apart. Your appointment for your 2nd dose will be given when you arrive for your first 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 seperate appointment in our regular clinic.

When you are ready to be vaccinated, please follow these instructions carefully:


BEFORE YOUR COVID VACCINE CLINIC APPOINTMENT...

  1. Check your eligibility to receive the Covid-19 vaccination on the Department of Health Vaccine Eligibility Checker. As of 8 April 2021, the AstraZeneca vaccine is only recommended for people aged over 50 years.
  2. If you are eligible and over 50 years of age, please book online here. Choose "Covid-19 Vaccine Dose 1" and then select a time slot.
  3. Please read and complete the Covid-19 vaccination consent form BEFORE you arrive at the vaccination clinic. 
    • You can print out the form at home, or pick up a copy from our clinic at Chevron Advanced Medical.
    • If you tick "Yes" to any of the questions, you must:
      • Call the National Covid-19 Vaccine Helpline on 1800 020 080.
      • Or, see your GP to check that you can still go ahead with the vaccination.
      • Our reception staff are not clinicians and won't be able to answer your medical questions.
  4. If you have had another vaccine recently, including for seasonal influenza, you should wait at least 14 days before having your Covid-19 vaccination.
  5. If you can't make it to your appointment, please let us know so that we can open up your booking for someone else. There are 10 doses per vial, and once the vial is opened, it must be used within a few hours. We don't want any doses to go to waste.



ON THE DAY OF YOUR VACCINE APPOINTMENT...
  1. Please bring your Medicare card AND a photo ID.
  2. Please bring the completed Covid-19 vaccination consent form.
  3. If you are under 70 years of age, but eligible due to a medical condition or workplace, you will be asked to sign a declaration form.
  4. You will be required to wait for 15 to 30 minutes after the vaccine in case of a reaction.
  5. You will be given a reminder card to book in 12 weeks time for your second Covid-19 vaccine dose.
  6. Your vaccination record will be uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register within 24 hours. You can access your record online via My Health Record.


AFTER YOUR COVID-19 VACCINATION...
  1. You must report any adverse reaction. Please call the NPS Adverse Medicine Events line on 1300 134 237 to report the reaction.
  2. You must not get any other vaccination for the next 2 weeks. For example, if you are planning on getting the flu shot, it must be at least 2 weeks apart from your Covid vaccination.
