An Albury GP wants vaccine supply to be quickly increased for general practice with few options for Border people to access Pfizer.
Sarkon Medical director Niranjan Sarjapuram is awaiting the result of his expression of interest to deliver the vaccine in Albury.
It comes after practices delivering AstraZeneca were invited by the Commonwealth earlier this month to apply to deliver Pfizer.
Sarkon's dedicated flu and COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Dean Street delivered its first AstraZeneca jab in April.
The change in preference for the vaccine, from those aged 50 and over to 60 and over, meant bookings went from full to few.
"It's put us in a difficult situation," Dr Sarjapuram said.
"That's a big group (50 to 59) and now, we can't offer them Pfizer.
"We don't have Pfizer at the moment, but we have been approved for Pfizer for Culcairn and we are going to get approval soon for Albury."
Dr Sarjapuram expects the Culcairn centre to receive its first delivery of Pfizer before June 30.
"We have started to advertise and we've got a wait list (of people) we can contact," he said.
"We would hope we get Pfizer for July and we're also making enquiries - if we have leftover in Culcairn, can we transfer it to Albury?
"We can do it for AstraZeneca but we don't have any clear information on the Pfizer.
"We don't want to waste it, we want to use it."
There have been concerns that the change in advice for AstraZeneca will see a drop in the take-up for those eligible, and Dr Sarjapuram said GPs should have been given more warning by the government.
"If it's come through the media, it will have been planned well before," he said.
"They should have communicated to the professionals and the providers sooner.
"There's a lot of administrative work to cancel appointments and put them on the waiting list."
Australia will receive its first Moderna doses in September or October.
The Moderna vaccine, likely to be two doses given 28 days apart, has passed the first stage of the Therapeutic Goods Administration's approval process.
"We don't have much information on that at the moment," Dr Sarjapuram said.
"We know they're in the process (of approval)."
The Sarkon Dean Street clinic has delivered nearly 3000 AstraZeneca, flu and childhood vaccinations, with those who haven't had the flu vaccination being urged to book in.
Dr Sarjapuram expects he won't be able to offer walk-ins for Pfizer, like he did for AstraZeneca early on.
"There is an issue with walk-ins because of supply," he said.
"If you request 500 for next week, you don't get 500, because you are limited to 150.
"Unfortunately, we do not have the supply to take walk-ins."
