Booking an appointment

Vaccine stocks are limited. If pharmacies have availability they will allow you to book an appointment. If you are do not see availability in your chosen store please check another store.

Vaccines come in vials that contain multiple doses. We need to coordinate patient appointment times to minimise any wastage of vaccines once vaccine vials are opened.

Minimising Wasted Doses:

Vaccine doses are precious, and we all have a responsibility to minimise waste. If you book an appointment and then for any reason are unable to attend, please let the pharmacy know as soon as possible.
