If you’re madly trying to book your COVID-19 vaccine, you might have to be patient as the online registration site deals with the sudden spike in online traffic.
On Tuesday afternoon, Premier Mark McGowan announced that despite last week’s National Cabinet decision to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine to those aged 40 and over, WA has gone a step further by offering the Pfizer jab to anyone aged 30 to 49.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 16 and over are also now eligible to be vaccinated, which is in line with a decision made at National Cabinet.
From Tuesday, June 8
You can now book.
Head to www.rollup.wa.gov.au or call 13 COVID on 13 268 43 to book your jab, and make sure you have your Medicare card details handy (and your postcode if you’re like me and suddenly had no idea)
