If you would like any information about how we can support you to get the COVID-19 vaccination, please do not hesitate to contact us on 8598 7051 or drop us a line at support@sydneycs.org.

Across our country, everyone over the age of 16 and many people over the age of 12 are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is a type of medicine that helps people fight a virus if you come in contact with it. The vaccine can stop people from getting very sick from the virus.

If you choose to have the COVID-19 vaccination and you need help to access it, please ask your supports or phone Sydney Community Services.

You can access the vaccine through:

  • Your local doctor’s offices.
  • A clinic run by your state or territory government or the Australian Government.
  • At places run by NDIS service providers.
  • If you live in a disability group home, a vaccination team might come to your home.
  • You might also be able to ask for a doctor to visit you at your home.
