Where should they get vaccinated?

Parents and guardians can now book and manage their child’s COVID-19 vaccine appointments from their own VaccinateWA (external link) account.

Appointments are available at:

  • State-run clinics via Vaccinate WA or 13 COVID (13 26843)

It is recommended that children with specified medical conditions are vaccinated by their GP, who understands their medical needs.

Children living in remote communities will be offered vaccinations as part of broader community outreach vaccination programs.

COVID-19 vaccination clinics are available in more than 100 locations across Western Australia, with locations listed on the HealthyWA website.

Do parent or guardians need to provide consent?

Yes. You should attend the vaccination appointment, but can also be available by telephone to give verbal consent or sign a consent form for your child to bring to their appointment.

If you, as the legal guardian, are unable to attend the appointment, your child must still be accompanied by a person over 18, even if they have a signed consent form.
