'COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker

Children's Pfizer

Your Doctors is offering Children's Pfizer to all children aged 5 to 11 (inclusive).  Children aged 12 and older receive the adult Pfizer vaccine. If your child turns 12 between their scheduled 1st and 2nd dose - they receive a paediatric dose for the 1st shot, and an adult dose for the 2nd shot.

Please call our practices to book an appointment, please do not book online.  We must use an entire vial of vaccine (10 doses) within hours once opened, so we schedule vaccinations to occur only on specific days with specific staff.

Our immunisation schedule is tight due to high demand.  You must be with your child and have them prepared to receive the vaccine within a few minutes.  If you miss this window then we may have to delay you by hours or reschedule for another day.

A parent/guardian is required to fill out the consent form below and bring it on the day.
