Can I have my second dose at Bondi Doctors if I had my first somewhere else?

 

If you had your first dose of Pfizer elsewhere, you are not able to have your second dose at Bondi Doctors. You must return to the clinic you originally had your first dose at, or at a Commonwealth-run vaccination hub.
