COVID care self-checker

Most people who are fully vaccinated will be able to care for themselves at home, like you would for other viruses.

You may have symptoms like a fever, cough, headache or a sore throat. You will probably feel unwell for a day or 2, and then start to feel better. Some fully vaccinated people will have no symptoms at all.

It is possible to have mild symptoms at the start of your illness, but become sicker over time.

If you’re unsure what kind of care you may need, use the COVID care self-checker.

It is a clinical self-assessment tool designed to help you understand what healthcare you may need based on your symptoms and other risk factors.

Once you complete the form, you’ll be presented with recommended next steps and self-care information. You’ll be told if you need to see your GP or your details will be sent to a hospital so they can call you. Some people will be told to call Triple Zero (000).
