By COOLOOLA COAST COMMUNITY LOCAL DISASTER MANAGEMENT SUPPORT GROUP
The local COVID-19 AZ vaccine (for over 60s) is available at Cooloola Coast General Practice. The Practice is required to schedule Vaccination Days, as it has regular but limited supplies and vaccination is only available at the Tin Can Bay Practice, so you need to contact the Practice and make an appointment.
The COVID-19 AZ vaccine will soon also be available at the community pharmacies in the region. Similarly, they will run clinics to manage administration of supply.
Queensland Government’s website contains the latest, up-to-date information on the vaccine roll-out, as well as a tool to find out when it is your turn to get the vaccine. Go to: qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/protect-yourself-others/covid-19-vaccine.
If you are unable to complete the online eligibility checker, speak with your doctor or call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84).
Gympie Regional Council continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will assess any potential impacts on Council services and events. COVID-19 updates and information can be found on Council’s website gympie.qld.gov.au.
