COVID-19 Vaccination Program

SA Health is working closely with the Australian Government Department of Health (DoH) to develop an implementation plan for South Australia in line with Australia's COVID-19 vaccine national roll-out strategy announced by the Federal Government. You can view the Vaccine Roadmap here.

In line with the national vaccine roll-out, the Women's and Children's Health Network is responsible for ensuring vaccinations are available for all staff across the Network.

At this stage, the Women’s and Children’s Hospital vaccination hub will be for staff only.

As doses will initially be limited, access to vaccines during the early period of the roll out will be made available to those who are most vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19 or who have the highest risk of being exposed to, or spreading, the virus.

About the Vaccine

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect you and the South Australian community.

Any COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in Australia must pass the TGA’s assessment and approval processes to ensure it is effective and safe.

Vaccines will be provided to priority groups first - including those who are at increased risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19, those who have an increased risk of developing severe disease or outcomes from COVID-19, and those working in health care and essential services.

Vaccines will be available to every South Australian over 18 years old.
