Walk in booster vaccinations are currently available between 9am-12pm Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm on Saturdays. We aim to have both Pfizer & Moderna vaccines available daily however this may change subject to stock.

**ANTIVIRAL MEDICATIONS**

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved two oral antiviral treatments for COVID-19 in Australia called Lagevrio® (molnupiravir) and Paxlovid® (nirmatrelvir + ritonavir) which we are able to provide with a valid prescription. 

People who are eligible for antiviral medicines include: 

  • Everyone aged over 70 
  • People aged 50 years and older with two or more risk factors for severe disease
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people aged 30 years and older with one or more risk factors for severe illness
  • Immunocompromised people over 18 may also be eligible.

If you test positive to COVID-19, have symptoms but do not require hospitalisation, and are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, you may also be eligible for antivirals.

Find advice on the eligibility criteria on the Department of Health website.

 

Bagga's Pharmacy does NOT take bookings for vaccinations, many surrounding Pharmacies are offering this service. If you require a booking or an appointment please contact your local Dr's Surgery or Pharmacy.
