COVID-19 Vaccination

Aged 50 years or over? You are eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccination, regardless of your Medicare or visa status

The COVID-19 vaccine is highly effective at reducing the risk of serious illness or death from the virus. This is important given the risk of severe complications from COVID-19 increases the older we are.

Making a booking to get your COVID-19 vaccine is quick and easy.

You can book an appointment at a participating GP or at one of the NSW Health vaccination clinics across the state. Simply visit to make your booking or call the National Coronavirus COVID-19 Vaccine Helpline on 1800 020 080, 24 hours, 7 days a week, for assistance.

If you prefer to speak in a language other than English, an interpreter can help. Call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450 (24-hour helpline) and ask for your language. Then you can ask the interpreter to connect you to the COVID-19 Vaccine Helpline.

And don’t forget, anyone aged 40 – 49 years can register their interest to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at a NSW Health vaccination clinic, located in metropolitan and regional areas. Tell your friends and family members aged 40-49 to visit to register their interest. They will be contacted when an appointment becomes available in their area.

Getting vaccinated is the best way we can help protect ourselves, our family and our community from COVID-19.
