Find and book a vaccination appointment
Your practice will appear in search results on HotDoc when patients search for COVID-19 vaccine clinics in their area.
Booking an appointment is easy, with no phone calls or assistance from your reception staff needed.
Multiple bookings in one appointment slot
Book as many vaccine appointments as you want to in each time slot for any practitioner.
For example, one practitioner can book four appointments in a 15 minute booking slot and another could book six.
Screen for eligibility
Ensure patients meet the right vaccine phase requirements. Patients are asked mandatory screening questions before being allowed to book.
Questions meet Department of Health requirements and will be automatically updated as the phases change.
Digital patient consent
Patients are sent a digital form before their appointment and give consent on their computer or phone before they arrive.
The form is based on government requirements but can be edited to suit your practice. It is uploaded as a PDF to the patient file in your practice management software.
Two dose bookings
Patients can book their first and second vaccine dose appointments at the same time on the HotDoc app or via your website.
The minimum time between each appointment is automatically set based on government guidelines for each vaccine brand.
Pre and post appointment communications
Patients are sent key vaccine information via email and text before and after their vaccine appointment.
The messages are editable and are sent automatically after a patient has booked and after they have completed their appointments.
Multiple staff appointments
We’ve made it easy for you to schedule two practice staff for each vaccine appointment eg. a practitioner and a nurse.
Setting this up for your choice of practice staff is simple and can be done in seconds from your HotDoc Dashboard.
Manage appointment availability based on your practice’s vaccine stock levels. Your practice is notified when you reach your limit so that you can prevent further online bookings being made.
National Health Services Directory Support
Your practice will automatically appear on the National Health Services Directory, healthdirect website as accepting vaccine appointments
After selecting your practice, patients will get a quick link to book an appointment.
Inform your patients
Make sure your patients know you’re accepting vaccines appointments
Let your patients know that your practice is accepting COVID-19 vaccine appointments for eligible patients.
You can set the campaign to appear after a patient has made a booking, confirmed a reminder, checked in online, or completed a new patient registration form.
