Testing for COVID-19
About testing for COVID-19. Who should get tested, how to get tested, testing criteria, and what to do if you get a positive or negative COVID-19 test result.
To ensure all South Australians have access to the COVID-19 vaccine, clinics are being established across all regional, rural, and metropolitan areas.
During later phases, every public hospital across the State will be involved in the vaccine roll-out to administer the vaccinations.
The State and Commonwealth Governments have commenced vaccinating aged care residents and staff in Commonwealth and State Government run facilities.
The State Government have also commenced vaccinating disability care staff and residents in State run facilities.
COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics will be opening at Wayville, Elizabeth and Noarlunga to vaccinate people under 50 years in Phase 1a and 1b.
Planning is underway to establish more clinics in metropolitan Adelaide and regional areas.
General practices are critical partners in Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine National Rollout Strategy. They will provide COVID-19 immunisation coverage for their local populations.
General practices will be prioritised for participation during the early stages of the phase 1b rollout, based on capacity, readiness and geographical spread. See the Eligibility Checker to find a GP near you.
The vaccine rollout in Commonwealth-funded GP-led Respiratory Clinics and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Health Services commenced on 22 March 2021.
Most Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) will participate in the vaccination program. ACCHS will provide culturally safe vaccination care for regular clients as well as to others in the community.
More information is available on the Information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people about COVID-19 vaccines page.
