At your vaccination, you will be able to discuss any questions you have about COVID-19 vaccination. In some circumstances, it may be better to have a discussion with your healthcare provider about vaccination before making an appointment for vaccination.

You will receive the vaccine as an injection, most commonly into your upper arm muscle.

You must remain in the vaccination clinic for observation for at least 15 minutes after vaccination.

Depending on your medical history, you may be asked to wait in the clinic for 30 minutes.

Some of the normal temporary side effects for COVID-19 vaccines include pain at the injection site, fever or muscle aches.

Some people will experience flu-like symptoms from the vaccine that are more significant when compared to other common vaccinations, and may need time away from normal activities.

If you want to check any symptoms following your vaccination, you can access the Australian Government’s vaccine side effects tracker.

See your doctor, nurse or go directly to the hospital if:

  • you have a reaction that you consider severe or unexpected
  • you are concerned about your condition after vaccination.
