COVID-19 vaccination for children who are not PCH patients

If you are not a PCH patient, you can book a vaccination for your child at a community clinic.

For children 6 months to 4 years receiving the Moderna vaccination, appointments can also be made at participating GP clinics across Western Australia. You can find a clinic near you through the COVID Vaccine Clinic Finder.

Head to the Service Finder on healthdirect or Roll up for WA to find a clinic close to you.

Please keep any existing booked appointments for a COVID-19 vaccination at a community clinic, GP or pharmacy, as we will be prioritising children who are medically vulnerable or at risk.
