FAQs

Appointments are not made through St John of God Murdoch Hospital. The vaccination process is being implemented by WA Department of Health and St John of God Murdoch Hospital do not have any direct control over it; rather we are participants in that process.

Those eligible will be provided with a link, which will take you to the WA Department of Health vaccination website.

Ten of thousands of people are included in Phase 1B. Currently both vaccination doses and the clinic locations are limited, which may make getting an appointment challenging initially. 

Do not be concerned as doses and locations will increase soon.  Remember, there is no rush.  We are lucky to not have the urgency of some other countries with higher transmission rates.

There are multiple clinic locations around Metropolitan Perth. When you enter your postcode, you will be offered locations closest to you.

Car parking is limited at the Murdoch campus and is ticketed. Please consider alternate travel.

No – you can book your second vaccination at any site offering bookings for that injection.

This can be done online via the link you received when you first made a booking, and cannot be done directly through the clinic.

At Murdoch, we are vaccinating with the AstraZeneca brand, which has been shown to be very effective and safe.

You will need two doses, approximately 12 weeks apart. This vaccine is being produced in Australia.

A number of Murdoch doctors and caregivers in Phase 1A have already accessed the vaccine with great success.

Some recipients of the vaccine have reported side effects ranging from just tenderness at the injection site through to flu symptoms. Please be aware that anaphylaxis is a risk with any vaccination.

Taking the vaccine is not mandatory.  We have been very lucky in WA but returning to some level of normality is contingent on widespread vaccination.

Reports show the rollout of the vaccine in the UK has led to a significant reduction in COVID-related hospital admissions.
