COVID-19 vaccination

All Australians are encouraged to have the free COVID-19 vaccine.

All NDIS participants aged 12 and over, their carers and support workers are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

The fastest way to book is using the Department of Health Vaccine Clinic Finder .

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccination, you should discuss these with your GP/doctor.

Accessible vaccination clinics

Some states and territories provide additional services to make it easier for people with a disability to get vaccinated. Further information is available on the Department of Health website .

Easy access link for COVID-19 vaccinations

The NDIA has partnered with the Pharmacy Guild of Australia to provide an easy access link for NDIS participants to book a COVID-19 vaccine .

More than 3,500 community pharmacies are participating across the country and more than one million doses of Moderna will be available through pharmacies in October in addition to the Astra Zeneca vaccine.

To book:

  1. visit the pharmacy bookings website  
  2. select your local pharmacy
  3. choose which vaccine (Moderna or Astra Zeneca) you would like to receive

If you need support to attend an offsite COVID-19 vaccination appointment, we encourage you to talk to your support worker or support coordinator.
