The COVID-19 vaccine is an important measure to keep WA safe and healthy, and will help protect yourself, your family and the community.
The rollout of the vaccine in WA commenced in late-February 2021, with priority groups (external link) offered the first doses. This included people most at risk of becoming very ill with COVID-19, and people at greater risk of becoming infected through their work.
Australia’s vaccination program is managed by the Australian Government (external link). The WA Department of Health are responsible for the rollout of the vaccination program in WA.
It is recommended all adults get the COVID-19 vaccine when they are eligible. The vaccine will be free.
