We are a COVID-19 vaccination provider
The Oaks Village Pharmacy is an approved vaccination provider for the COVID-19 vaccine. We are happy to help provide COVID-19 immunisation for our local area and wider community. COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary and free.
The primary benefit of vaccination is protection against illness from COVID-19, and in particular protection against severe illness and death.
Checking when you can receive your COVID-19 vaccine
To find out when you are eligible to receive the vaccine, visit https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility and complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker. This will tell you which phase of the rollout you are in.
Booking your COVID-19 vaccination appointment
When it is your turn to get vaccinated, you can book at https://the-oaks-village-pharmacy.pharmacybookings.com.au/, or come in to the pharmacy.
You can also call us on (02) 4657 1387 to book your appointments to get your first and second doses of the vaccine. We are now giving booster vaccinations as well.
Make sure you book an appointment for your first and second doses of the vaccine. Please call us if you need to confirm what the timing should be between the appointments. If you need phone or on-site interpreting, call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 13 14 50.
Getting ready for your appointment
Please do not come to your vaccination appointment:
- if you are feeling unwell with fever, cough, runny nose or other symptoms that could be from COVID-19
- if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or have tested positive for COVID-19
- if you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or
- if you are in quarantine.
If you have had another vaccine in the 7 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please let us know as we may need to reschedule your appointment.
If you cannot make it to your vaccination appointment, please contact us to arrange a new appointment.

When you are ready
The trained immunisation pharmacist will go through a pre-vaccination checklist with you before you have the vaccine.
After the vaccine we require you to wait inside the pharmacy for 15 minutes to monitor any adverse reactions, if it occurs.
