Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccination for 5-11 year olds will be available at BFWC.

Posted on Categories blog

In light of the recent government announcement that children 5 to 11 years old will be eligible for a COVID vaccination from January 10th 2022, Brighton Family & Women’s Clinic has put in our order for these Pfizer Vaccines

We will run a dedicated clinic for children 5-11 years on Sunday the 16th January and Sunday 6th February with clinics dedicated for children’s second doses to run on Sunday the 20th March and Sunday 3rd April 2022.

More clinics will be added as stock becomes available.

To ensure a smooth process on the day:
Please dress your child in short sleeves so we can access the immunisation site (their arm) easily
Please fill in and submit the consent form with your children’s details (part of the online booking process via HotDoc) at least 12 hours before your appointment
Please arrive at the time of your appointment time – appointments will be scheduled every 5 minutes
This document includes frequently asked questions about your vaccine and what to expect afterward; we will be able to provide you a copy on the day but please read this before you arrive (link to Pfizer vac info)
When booking on HotDoc you will be prompted to book your second vaccination appointment before the booking process is completed; we recommend this to ensure adequate stock availability and that your child/ren is fully vaccinated in a timely manner.

Please note: BOOKINGS CAN ONLY BE MADE ONLINE VIA HOTDOC.

Our receptionists are unable to book or reschedule these appointments. If you call the clinic you will be directed back to HotDoc to book or reschedule your appointments. Please use the link below to book.

FAQs
Is it safe to immunise children?

You may be feeling hesitant about having your children vaccinated; we are confident in providing Covid-19 vaccines as they have been well studied and carefully and thoroughly approved by our Australian TGA and ATAGI. The Royal Children’s Hospital provides excellent podcasts via their Kids Health Info podcasts, including this one about Pfizer vaccinations for children

If you still have questions please book a 15 minute appointment with your GP in the weeks leading up to Super Sunday.

What happens on the day of my child’s vaccination?

Please arrive with enough time to park and enter the clinic; due to the number of appointments, you may need to park off site on Thomas Street or the Nepean Highway service lane.

You do not need to call reception when you arrive – please enter the clinic at the time of your appointment. This will enable us to maintain safe distances. Please wear an appropriate surgical face mask, and if possible, please provide one for your children as well. There will be limited waiting space inside the clinic.

What happens after my vaccination?
Once immunised, you will shown to a designated space to wait, outside for 15 minutes before you can leave. This is a requirement of vaccination.
