Year 12 Vaccinations

📢 Priority Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination appointments are now available for ACT Year 12 students.

Year 12 students can book a priority appointment at the AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic and get vaccinated between Monday 6 September to Friday 17 September 2021.

These priority appointments are available for all Year 12 students across the ACT, including public, private, Catholic and specialist schools.

Call the ACT COVID-19 booking line on 02 5124 7700 (7am to 7pm, daily) to make a priority booking. You’ll need to answer some questions to confirm your eligibility. Use the call back service so you don’t have to wait on the line.

Priority appointments cannot be made online – you must call get a booking. If you have an existing appointment at an ACT Government COVID-19 vaccination clinic, call and move your appointment forward.

You can also choose to get your Pfizer vaccination at a participating GP, who have been asked to prioritise year 12 students. This might suit students with additional needs or who find it hard to access AIS. The Australian Government’s Eligibility Checker is useful for finding and booking at nearby participating GP clinics.

Once registered, you’ll be sent a notification when appointments become available. This will be when the ACT’s supply of Pfizer vaccine increases.

If you can’t register onlinecall the COVID-19 booking line on 5124 7700 (7:00 am to 7:00 pm daily). Use the call back system to save waiting on the line.

Vaccination registrations are only available for ACT Government COVID-19 vaccination clinics, not GPs or pharmacies.

As Pfizer vaccination bookings may not be available until October, many younger Canberrans may still choose to talk to their trusted health professional about AstraZeneca.
