Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is an important and effective way to protect yourself, your family and the community.
Between Monday 19 July and Sunday 1 August (inclusive) people who work in the disability sector, people with disability and their carers can attend any state-run vaccination clinic in Western Australia without an appointment, to receive their COVID-19 vaccination.
This opportunity is open to people in these groups aged 16 and over, and includes people eligible in phases 1a and 1b.
People aged between 16 to under 60 years will receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and people aged 60 years and over will receive the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Different COVID-19 vaccines are available on different days at state-run community vaccination clinics. More information about which vaccines are being administered is available, click here.
To make the process at the vaccination clinic faster, please register on VaccinateWA, or call 13 COVID (13 26843) prior to attending the clinic, however between the above dates, an appointment is not needed.
On the day
People working in the disability sector will be asked to provide evidence of their employment such as a photo ID, payslip, or letter from their employer.
It is preferable that carers and people with disability bring documentation to support their eligibility (this is not prescriptive and may include any format such as an official letter, medical paperwork, NDIS plan, or NDIS portal screen shot for example).
When you arrive, please go to the priority lane, or if there isn’t one at your chosen clinic, speak to the administrative staff and let them know you are a disability care worker, carer or person with disability.
Ensure you arrive at least one hour before the clinic is due to close. People arriving close to closing time may be asked to return the next day. During busy periods, you may need to queue for a short time.
Priority access appointments – from 2 August
From Monday 2 August, people who work in the disability sector, people with disability and their carers can book priority access appointments through VaccinateWA or by calling 13 COVID (13 26843).
