Here at Roslyn Pharmacy, we have qualified Vaccinating Pharmacists who are able to administer a number of funded and non-funded vaccinations. Vaccinations are administered in the Pharmacy where we use one of our private consultation rooms. There is plenty of space, plenty of car parks, and plenty of experienced people making sure your vaccination experience is as safe, pleasant and efficient as possible.

How to book your vaccination?

Vaccinations are carried out Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am - 12pm and 2pm - 5pm.  

Bookings for Covid and Flu: 
We accept walk-in appointments during our vaccinating hours.

Bookings for all other vaccinations: Please phone us on (03) 477 9793 before coming in.  This will assure we have stock of your required vaccine before you arrive.

How long will it take?

Our Vaccinating Pharmacist will go through the pre-vaccination checks and ask you to fill in the consent form before administering your vaccination. The process takes about 5 minutes, which includes administering the vaccination. After your dose, you will need to wait for up to 20 minutes in the shop. This is to ensure you don't have a post-vaccination reaction. In the unlikely case of this happening to you, our staff are trained to keep you safe. Post-vaccination wait time does depend on which vaccination(s) you have had. The vaccinating Pharmacist will let you know during your pre-vaccination check.


Why get vaccinated?

Vaccinating helps reduce the spread of disease, protecting not only individuals but also the wider community. It can also help reduce the risk of a disease outbreak, which can be devastating for communities. Vaccination is especially important for vulnerable members of the population, such as the elderly, pregnant women, and children.


How do vaccines work?

Vaccines help protect people against a variety of serious illnesses. Vaccines work by introducing a small amount of a weakened or killed virus into the body. This stimulates the body’s natural defence system to produce antibodies to fight it. If the person comes into contact with the real virus in the future, their body is already prepared to fight it and they are much less likely to become ill.


How are vaccines given?

Vaccinations are administered as an injection by one of our vaccinating Pharmacists. The injection is inserted into the muscle in the upper arm. Before administering the vaccine, our Vaccinating Pharmacist will check your medical history and ask some questions about any allergies you may have. 

Can you come to me?

Yes! We offer what we refer to as off-site clinics where we come to your business and vaccinate your team, we do however require a minimum of 10 people for this service.  Feel free to give us a call or email us and one of our team members can help organise this for you.
