Get Your Covid Vaccination at Pro Health Care
The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone in Australia. At Pro Health Care, many of our medical centres are running dedicated Vaccination Clinics which are strictly by appointment only.
Patients of Pro Health Care are encouraged to use the online eligibility tool to check which vaccine they are eligible to receive. We encourage existing patients to discuss any concerns with their usual GP in a separate consultation.
Patients that are new to our clinics will require either a health summary from their usual GP or a consultation with one of our GP’s prior to receiving a vaccination at one of our dedicated covid vaccination clinics in Adelaide.
Protect yourself and the community
Vaccination is the most effective way to protect against infectious diseases. Vaccines strengthen your immune system by training it to recognise and fight against specific viruses. When you get vaccinated, you are protecting yourself and helping to protect the whole community.
Help reduce COVID-19 in the community
COVID-19 can spread quickly and widely. It has resulted in the deaths of over 1.9 million people worldwide and over 900 deaths in Australia. When enough people in the community are vaccinated, it slows down the spread of disease.
Achieving herd immunity is a long-term goal. It usually requires a large amount of the population to be vaccinated. Studies will monitor the impact of COVID-19 vaccines in Australia and whether herd immunity is developing over time. For this reason, public health practices will stay in place until evidence shows that:
- vaccination prevents transmission and
- herd immunity is achieved in Australia.
The best strategy to manage the potential public health risk posed by incoming travellers is to enforce mandatory quarantine with regular COVID-19 testing.
Vaccination rates in Australia
Australian families demonstrate that we are a vaccination nation. Childhood immunisation rates reached record levels of 95.09 per cent for all 5 year old children at December 2020. Reaching our vaccination target of 95 per cent supports herd immunity to slow down the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases.
For other vaccines, when lots of people in the community are protected by immunisation, we rarely see the deadly diseases they prevent. This includes diseases such as diphtheria, measles and meningococcal disease. It is not yet known if we can eradicate COVID-19. The first step is to reduce the harm it causes and its spread in the community. High immunisation rates also protect vulnerable people in our community who cannot be vaccinated, such as very young children or people who are too sick.
Reduce the health, social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic
Higher vaccination rates makes outbreaks much less likely. It also reduces the need for preventive measures, such as border closures and travel restrictions. This will reduce the health, social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It will help save lives and livelihoods.
Please note that due to complexities in running busy Covid clinics, and various issues in clarifying patient’s elibigility to participate under the National Vaccination Program, our Medical Clinics request that patients call to arrange their vaccination rather than booking online. You can find the number for your nearest Pro Health Care clinic at our locations page.
