The COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family and will help prevent the further spread of the virus. When you get vaccinated, you are protecting yourself and helping to protect the whole community.  Higher vaccination rates makes outbreaks much less likely. It also reduces the need for preventive measures, such as border closures and travel restrictions.

Some quick FAQ's to assist you

Q :What is the best timing interval between other vaccines and COVID-19 vaccines?

A :

Please note important information regarding timing intervals between vaccines:

The preferred minimum interval between the Flu vaccine or other vaccines and COVID-19 vaccine in 2021 is 7 days. This approach may reduce the likelihood of overlapping adverse events following immunisation. 

If you are planning to book in for your COVID-19 vaccine, please seek advice from your Pharmacist, GP or immunising health care professional about the most appropriate time to make your appointment, so the minimum interval of 7 days from your other vaccines can be observed.

Q :When am I eligible to be vaccinated in pharmacy?

A :

Approved pharmacies in QLD, NSW and SA are able to provide the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine to eligible people aged 18 years and over or the Spikevax (Moderna) or Comirnaty (Pfizer)  vaccine to eligible people aged 12 and over.
Currently, the Department of Health advise mRNA vaccines (such as the Spikevax/Moderna vaccine or the Comirnaty/Pfizer vaccine) are preferred if you are aged 12-59. 

Please check availability via the booking links or direct with your local Star Discount Chemist.

Q :How do I provide consent for my child to be vaccinated?

A :

You will need to provide consent when your child attends the Star Discount Chemist COVID-19 Vaccination clinic.
Download and complete the consent form for your child and bring this along to your child’s appointment.
If you are unable to attend the appointment, send the form along with your child and a responsible person aged over 18 years.
You will need to be available via telephone at the time of your child’s appointment to confirm consent with our vaccinating Pharmacist.

Q :Can I get my second COVID-19 vaccination from my pharmacy?

A :

For people who have already been vaccinated with their first dose of the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) or the Spikevax (Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to book your appointment for your second dose.

Q :What about booster doses of the vaccine?

A :
  • You are eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose if you:

    • are 16 years and older, and
    • had the second dose of your primary dose course of COVID-19 vaccination at least 3 months ago.

    Booster doses are not mandatory, however they are recommended to maintain immunity against COVID-19.

    Benefits of a booster dose

    Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine provide very good protection, especially against severe disease.

    A booster dose will make sure the protection from the first two doses is even stronger and longer lasting, and should help prevent spread of the virus.

    A booster dose increases your protection against infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, severe disease or dying from COVID-19.

    A booster dose will continue to protect you, your loved ones and your community against COVID-19.

    Booster doses are free for everyone
