87 clinics across WA including 10 in Rockingham and Mandurah are offering the AstraZeneca vaccine.

These include: 

  • Mandurah Medical Centre

  • The Bridge Family Practice and Skin Clinic

  • Waikiki GP Super Clinic

  • Rockingham Family Practice

  • Palm Springs Medical Centre, Warnbro

  • Rockingham Maternity & Family Practice

  • Jupiter Health, Lakelands

To check if you are eligible, visit the Department of Health website.

According to the WA Health Department, to date, a total of 32,115 Western Australians have been vaccinated.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Michael Kidd has urged people to be patient.

“Obviously we won’t be able to vaccinate all six million people (on Monday), or over the coming week, so please be patient,” he said.

“At the moment, some general practices will only receive 50 doses a week and they will be prioritising their most elderly and most unwell patients.”
