Workers aged over 50 years can access the AstraZeneca vaccine at their local GP clinic, Commonwealth Vaccination Centre (previously GP-led Respiratory Clinics) or Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS). Participating clinics can be found on the eligibility checker.

All disability support workers can also visit their state or territory government-run clinics to access the vaccine recommended for their age. To confirm eligibility and book an appointment, please complete the eligibility checker.
