Joondalup’s Community Vaccination Clinic is now offering the Pfizer vaccine to eligible people, which now includes those aged 50-59.
The clinic – with a capacity to vaccinate up to 5,800 people a week – aims to boost access to vaccination for people living in Perth’s northern suburbs.
The Pfizer vaccine is available for Western Australians aged 40-59 and AstraZeneca for those 60 and over. People who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and are 16 years and over are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine and should register and book in now.
People aged 30 to 39 who have made bookings at State-run clinics will be vaccinated. Bookings for this cohort have been extremely high and appointments are already booked out until August.
People aged 30 to 39 who have not yet made a booking are encouraged to go to https://rollup.wa.gov.au and register their details. This will ensure an expedited process once more Pfizer becomes available from the Commonwealth.
Pfizer appointments will be offered Sunday to Wednesday each week in the West Mall at the Lakeside Joondalup Shopping Centre (420 Joondalup Drive) in Joondalup.
Anyone aged 60 years or over is eligible for AstraZeneca, and this will still be offered at the Joondalup Community Vaccination Clinic on Thursday to Saturday.
If you have already received an AstraZeneca first dose, Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation advice is that it is very safe to receive a second AstraZeneca dose.
To date, Department of Health staff have administered more than 253,375 COVID-19 vaccinations.
Bookings can be made by visiting https://rollup.wa.gov.au or by calling 13 COVID (13 268 43).
