Tasmanians are encouraged to get vaccinated against COVID-19 this year to protect themselves, their family and their community. The Tasmanian and the Australian Governments are working together to give safe COVID-19 vaccinations to the community. Vaccines will be delivered in phases, with the first phase started on 23 February 2021 and all Tasmanians aged 18 and over will be able to get vaccinated for free by the end of October 2021.
With such a large-scale vaccination program ahead of us, many Tasmanians will have questions about vaccines and the rollout of the program. You can find answers to your most frequently asked questions at:
Which vaccine phase relates to you?
Phase 1A COVID-19 vaccinations are underway. All vaccines will be delivered in phases.
Whilst people in this first stage are being contacted directly, you can check when it will be your turn to get the COVID-19 vaccine with the eligibility checker!
It’s a simple and easy way to find out which phase you fit into: http://www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/…/cov…/vaccine-rollout
Recipients in Phase 1B and beyond are not being vaccinated at this stage. The public will be made aware in advance when later vaccination stages begin. A booking system will also become available later for these recipients.
