Free Pulse Oximeters

Published on Monday, 28 February 2022 at 9:00:00 AM

To assist with keeping the community safe and assist with managing COVID-19 in Western Australia, the WA Health Department is offering free pulse oximeters to vulnerable members of the community.

A pulse oximeter is a small peg-like device that clips onto your finger to read your heart rate and blood oxygen level.

Having a pulse oximeter allows you to participate in the free COVID at-home care program if you test positive, allowing symptoms to be tracked and provides support during your recovery.

If you meet the eligibility criteria below, you can collect your free Pulse Oximeter from Shire Administration during office hours.
If you can answer ‘YES’ to the following questions you are eligible to receive a free pulse oximeter:

  • Are you non-Aboriginal and over 65?
  • Are you Aboriginal and over 50?
  • Are you pregnant?

Limit of one per household.

For more information, please visit WA COVID Care at Home (

Please ensure when visiting the Shire to collect your Pulse Oximeter that you are well and follow all check-in and mask wearing requirements.
