COVID-19 Vaccine information

Having a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is one way we can protect our community against coronavirus.

COVID-19 vaccines help to prevent serious illness and death from COVID-19, and they are free for everyone in Australia.

Q1 Medical is pleased to advise that we are an approved vaccination provider for the COVID-19 vaccines. We are happy to help provide COVID-19 immunisation for our local area and wider community.

Checking when you can receive your COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out to people in phases, with those most at risk receiving their vaccinations first.

To find out when you are eligible to receive the vaccine, visit and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker. This will tell you which phase of the rollout you are in.

You can then make a booking to receive your vaccine. 

Booking your COVID-19 vaccination appointment

When it is your turn to get vaccinated, you can book on our website online

COVID-19 Vaccine Booking – Werribee

COVID-19 Vaccine Booking – Highpoint/Maribyrnong

Please choose the appointment type “COVID Dose 1 – Phase 1b”. You will be directed to fill in an online ‘consent form’ prior to finalising your online booking. 

Make sure you book an appointment for your second dose of the vaccine on completion of the dose 1. Please check with Reception staff if you need to confirm what the timing should be between the appointments. Maximum protection against COVID-19 will not occur until after your second dose – when you are fully immunised.

Getting ready for your appointment

Please do not come to your vaccination appointment

  • if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
  • if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
  • if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or
  • if you are in quarantine.

If you have had another vaccine, for example the influenza vaccination, in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.

If you cannot make it to your vaccination appointment, please contact us to arrange a new appointment.
