COVID-19 vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is an important measure to help protect you, your family and the community.

  • It is recommended that all Western Australians 5 years and over get the free COVID-19 vaccine
  • Young children aged 6 months to under 5 years who have severe immunocompromise, disability, or complex and/or multiple health conditions which increase the risk of severe COVID-19 are also eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. See the Healthy WA COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs for more information.

Where can you get vaccinated?

There are many locations across WA where you can get a COVID-19 vaccine. These include GPs, pharmacies and Aboriginal Medical Services. Visit the Vaccine Clinic Finder (external site) to find your nearest participating COVID-19 vaccine provider.

If you require assistance in receiving a vaccination, specialist nurses are able to provide in-home vaccinations and can be accessed using the Further Assistance Required (external site) online form, by calling 13 COVID (13 268 43), or emailing COVID.immunisation@health.wa.gov.au.

You can also contact your local GP or pharmacy to discuss what additional support options they may have to help you access COVID-19 vaccinations.
