COVID VACCINATION INFORMATION

Chirnside Park Family Clinic is a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has recommended an additional vaccine dose for the following groups:

  • Anyone aged 65 years and older
  • People who live in aged care or disability care facilities
  • People aged 16 and over who have been deemed severely immunocompromised
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and older.

ATAGI says people in these categories are at the greatest risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
In the case of some severely immunocompromised people who received three doses as part of their primary vaccination series, followed by a booster, this program means they are now eligible for their fifth shot.
