COVID-19 Vaccine Update:
We are currently offering both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines for COVID-19. Please call our reception on 6247 4807 to book into a clinic with your doctor. To check your eligibility for the vaccine, please visit this website.
The most recent eligibility criteria include the following groups:
The Pfizer vaccine will be available for all patients under the age of 60, patients over that age, or patients who make a specific request will be provided with the AstraZeneca vaccine. Patients who had already received their first AstraZeneca dose are encouraged to attend to receive their second dose, even if the recommendations from the ATAGI/TGA have changed in the meantime.
We now have a private stock of Influenza vaccines available for all patients at the cost of $25 per person.
Government funded vaccines will be available around Easter to all patients over the age of 65, over the age of 6 months but under the age of 5 years, people who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, patients with chronic health conditions, as well as pregnant women.
