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 seperate appointment in our regular clinic. 


UPDATE: October 2021

ATAGI has recommended Dose 3 for people who are severely immunocompromised. Dose 3 should be done 2 to 6 months after Dose 2. Dose 3 is recommended to be an MRNA vaccine (Pfizer), though you can opt to receive AstraZeneca for your third dose under certain circumstances. 


UPDATE: November 2021

Dose 3 for the general public is recommended to be given 6 months after Dose 2. Pfizer is preferred for Dose 3, though you can opt to receive AstraZeneca under certain circumstances.
