Pfizer Vaccination

Paddington Family Practice has been chosen to be part of the Pfizer vaccination roll-out. We have started our vaccination clinics for EXISTING patients ONLY as we currently have a limited supply. Eligible current patients will first need to RESERVE a Pfizer vaccine. When your allocated Pfizer vaccine arrives you will receive an SMS to book your appointment.

All patients aged 16 to 39 became eligible for the Pfizer vaccine from 30 August. 

All patients aged 12 to 15 became eligible for Pfizer vaccine from 13 September.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR CURRENT PATIENTS OF PADDINGTON FAMILY PRACTICE:

  1. All people aged 12-59

  2. People aged 16 and above (with no upper age limit) who are a:

    • resident or staff member of an aged care home

Note Before

  1. Our reception team is unfortunately unable to access or manage the Reservation List, so they will NOT be able to assist you to rejoin or change your position on the Reservation List.

  2. When you have reserved a vaccine you will receive an SMS invitation to book your vaccine appointment as soon as stock becomes available. You will have 24 hours to book your vaccine appointment after receiving you SMS invitation, before the reserved vaccine is offered to another patient. If you don’t book you appointment within 24 hours, you will need to rejoin the reservation list.

  3. If you do not have proof of your eligibility for the Pfizer vaccine please complete this vaccine eligibility declaration form. The form can also be found on the eligibility checker and is to be completed by people confirming they meet the above critera if they do not have other proof.

  4. Families wishing to reserve vaccines for multiple eligible family members must join the Reservation List individually for each family member.

  5. Unfortunately, non-medicare card holders can not access a COVID vaccine at PFP. They can still access the vaccination for free at any public vaccination sites.
