Frequently asked questions

Can I leave quarantine to get my first dose of COVID 19 vaccination?

You cannot leave quarantine to get a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination. You should reschedule your appointment.

Can I leave quarantine to get my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

If you are due to get your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, you have up to 42 days from your first dose to get your second dose, and should reschedule your appointment within this timeframe if possible.

If you are due to get your second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, you have up to 12 weeks from your first dose to get your second dose, and should reschedule your appointment within this timeframe if possible.

If you cannot reschedule your second dose, email SA Health at Health.DHWCOVID19VACCTEAM@sa.gov.au with your name, contact number and booking details.

Someone will call you to arrange a new booking at a suitable clinic. Please do not attend your original appointment until someone has spoken to you.

This will require medical oversight to confirm this is a valid request and approval from an Authorised Officer and you may be directed to a different clinic than the one you originally booked at. You will also need to have at least one negative COVID-19 test result before your appointment and will need to demonstrate proof of this. You will also need to wear a face mask while attending your appointment.

How long I need to be in quarantine and when I need to get tested?

The day you last visited an exposure location is counted as day 0. If required, you must quarantine for 14 more days from this date.

You must obtain your first test within 24 hours of being notified or becoming aware that you have been at an exposure location. You are required to have a day 5 and day 13 test after exposure.

If you don’t have your first test until 4 to 7 days after exposure, you are not required to have a test on day 5 but instead must have a test on day 9. You are not required to have more than one test in a 48 hour window, unless symptomatic or directed by an Authorised Officer.

You must have a negative result in your day 13 test before you can leave quarantine.
If your first test is on day 13, you only need one test (your day 13 test) unless otherwise instructed.

You should get tested immediately at any time during the 14 days if you develop new symptoms.

You may be required to get tested at other times when directed to do so by SA Health or a person acting on behalf of SA Health.
