COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

Vaccination provider

Please read vaccination information

Pfizer: 12+
AstraZeneca: 18+
Dose 3: immunocompromised
Boosters: after 6 months

Altona North Respiratory Clinic is a project of Cirqit Health, run through Altona North Medical Group and Circle Health.

In February 2021 Altona North Respiratory Clinic (ANRC) began preparation for a COVID-19 Vaccination clinic and first doses were administered soon after on March 22. Using the processes developed in the COVID testing Clinic, including strong infection control principles, ANRC set up a successful vaccination clinic that can administer over 200 vaccines in a half-day clinic while continuing to provide COVID testing and consultation services for patients everyday.

As a Commonwealth COVID-19 vaccination provider we provide free vaccinations to anyone aged 12 years or older, prioritising those who fall within government priority groups and following ATAGI recommendations.

– An additional “Winter Booster” 

Recent ATAGI guidelines recommend an additional Booster for: Adults aged 65+, Residents of aged/disability care facilities (including those under 65), Anyone 16+ with severe immunocompromise (defined here), Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people 50+.
– The additional winter booster can be given 4 months or longer after a first booster dose, or from 4 months after a confirmed COVID-19 infection, if that occurred after the person’s first COVID-19 booster dose.

– Booster Vaccines: anyone 16+ with a 2nd dose over 3 months ago

– A Booster is recommended for those whose immune response has naturally weakened over time (i.e., the general population) to maintain adequate protection against COVID-19. It is not currently recommended for those aged 12-17.
– A Booster is highly recommended for the Omicron variants. Vaccination 3+ months ago may not protect against transmission of the Omicron variant.
– Pfizer is recommended for all Booster shots regardless of which vaccine was given for Dose 1 & 2.

– Kids aged 5—11: Vaccinations

– We run only select clinics for children aged between 5 and 11. You MUST book through the separate link (below). The dose is different and we cannot vaccinate children under 12 in our regular Pfizer Clinic.
– There will be 2 doses. The second dose appointment will be organised on the day and all vaccinations will be with Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine.

– Primary Course (Doses 1 & 2): Based on your age and on advice from ATAGI

– AstraZeneca Vaxzevria is preferred for those aged 60 or older, given 4-12 weeks apart.
– Pfizer Comirnaty is used for anyone aged 12+, given 3-6 weeks apart.

– Third Doses: for immunocompromised people

– A third dose is considered part of the primary course of COVID vaccination for those who may not have produced a significant immune response from 2 doses. Please check you eligibility for a 3rd Dose here. 
– ATAGI recommends an interval of 2 months, with a minimum of 1 month in exceptional circumstances, after the 2nd dose of vaccine. Pfizer is recommended for this 3rd dose.
– Please BRING A REFERRAL FROM YOUR DOCTOR for a 3rd dose (if less than 3 months after dose 2).
