Booking your vaccination appointment

To keep our state safe, we are ensuring all South Australians have access to safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines as soon as possible.

As the rollout progresses, we have made some changes to our plan including opening dedicated vaccination clinics across metro and regional SA.

All people 50 and over can now book an appointment to be vaccinated, and can access the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine at GPs and Respiratory Clinics, or at one of our dedicated vaccination clinics.

Eligible people under 50 will be given the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
More clinics across metro and regional SA will be opening in the coming weeks.

Am I eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19?

Right now, South Australia is vaccinating people in all priority groups. This includes:

  • Anyone over 50 years old
  • Adults of any age with an eligible underlying medical condition
  • All health care workers
  • Residential aged care residents and staff
  • Residential disability care residents and staff
  • Quarantine, medi-hotel, airport and maritime workers
  • People who are immediate family of, or living with, a quarantine or airport worker
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over 16
  • Critical and high risk workers

The vaccination commencement date for the rest of South Australia’s adult population is still to be confirmed. Our aim is for every South Australian over 16 years to have the opportunity to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in 2021.

Please refer to South Australia’s vaccination rollout plan for more information.

I am eligible – how do I book?

Right now, SA Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics in metro and regional South Australia are taking bookings, and more clinics will be coming online shortly.

If you are eligible, book your appointment online or call the National Vaccine Helpline on 1800 020 080.

Please note, if you are currently pregnant or have previously had a serious reaction to a vaccine, you must speak to your GP before booking your appointment. You will need to bring a letter from your GP to your appointment, stating that they recommend you get vaccinated against COVID-19.

What if I am over 50?

From 3 May 2021, people 50 years and over can receive the AstraZeneca vaccine at Respiratory Clinics and selected state vaccination clinics.

Participating GP practices will start offering people 50 years and over the AstraZeneca vaccine soon.

Book your appointment online now or call the National Vaccine Helpline on 1800 020 080.

Where are the SA Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics?

The SA Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics do not accept walk-ins.

What if I can’t attend an SA Health COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic?

There may be some people who are eligible to be vaccinated but unable to attend an SA Health Vaccination Clinic. If there are no other providers in your area delivering the vaccine recommended for you, we are currently working on ways to offer you a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible.

Other ways COVID-19 vaccines are being delivered in South Australia

These sites, in both metro and regional South Australia, are being used to vaccinate eligible workforces by invitation and appointment only.

GPs, Respiratory Clinics and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services

If you’re over 50 and eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19, you can book an appointment at a GP, Respiratory Clinic, or Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service through the Commonwealth Government’s Vaccine Eligibility Checker.

Outreach services

Outreach services are offering vaccination in some workplaces, aged care facilities and disability care facilities, and some remote communities.

These services continue to provide vaccines to priority groups.
