Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. However, some will become seriously ill and require medical attention. Older people and those with underlying medical conditions are more likely to develop serious illness.

Many general practice clinics, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations and pharmacies are already providing access to COVID-19 vaccinations for their local communities. This webpage contains relevant information, resources and links for primary care vaccination providers. Should you require more, visit the Department of Health and Aged Care’s website or the Australian Immunisation Handbook.
