COVID-19 & Flu Vaccine Update

COVID-19 Update

Our clinic has plenty of Covid-19 vaccine in stock for eligible people aged 60 years and over. Please DO NOT CALL our clinic for a booking as this is jamming all our phone lines and patients are having difficulty getting through for their usual appointments.  A COVID VACCINE BOOK NOW booking link is located on the home page of our website and how you need to book an appointment if you are eligible. You are also able to download the Hotdocs App onto your phone and look up our clinic to check available sessions.

The government has recently changed the advice on the eligibility criteria for the COVID vaccines and has released several resources to provide information on these changes and their recommendations.  If you have received your first COVID Vaccine dose and have any questions or concerns about your second dose speak to your doctor.

General practices will be receiving COVID vaccines for eligible people aged 18 to 59 years from October 2021. At this stage we have NOT been informed when these vaccines will be arriving and which general practices will be allocated these vaccines. When we are notified of our allocation of these COVID vaccines we will let you know.

Flu Vaccine Update

Our clinic has the 2021 Flu vaccine available. As we head into our winter months it is recommended that the community be immunised against the 2021 flu.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has updated their advice on the 17 June 2021 regarding people recommended to get the COVID vaccines and recommended the interval for people to be given the Influenza vaccine can be given before or after any dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, with a minimum interval of 7 days.
