Wa health covid vaccine booking: How and where to get your COVID-19 vaccination

COVID-19 vaccination community clinics are now open in Western Australia to make it easier to get your vaccination when you are eligible.

You must book ahead to receive your COVID-19 vaccine at a community clinic. Community clinics are only administering the AstraZeneca vaccine to people aged 50 years and over.

You can register and book an appointment online through the VaccinateWA website (external link).

Alternatively, you can call 13COVID (13 26843) to book your appointment between 8am and 6pm, seven days a week. Select option 1 for the WA Vaccination Booking line.

Booking over the phone can take 5-10 minutes to process your information, and you’ll need to provide:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Contact number
  • Email address

If you have a Medicare card, please have it handy when you call to book your appointment.

You will also be asked some health questions, and can ask questions about the vaccine if you have particular health concerns.

If calling on behalf of someone else, you must be their legal guardian or have their permission to do so. You’ll need to provide the same information listed above for that person.

You are still able to have your vaccination at participating GPs. To find your nearest participating GP, go to the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility checker and follow the steps.

Please note that if you are aged 50 years and over, you cannot select which COVID-19 vaccine you will receive. The Pfizer vaccine is preferred only for people aged under 50 years, based on the advice of the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI).

If you are not yet eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, you cannot book an appointment with 13 COVID yet.

You can keep up-to-date with each phase of the program at the HealthyWA website and register your interest in receiving a vaccine at the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility checker.
