Updated 31/05/2020 - Due to an error on Telstra's end our phones have been disconnected and are not expected to be restored until the middle of next week. We have arranged for our main line to be diverted to our mobile, but this unfortunately leaves us with only one telephone line. Therefore, in an effort to keep this line available please use our online booking system to book your appointment. However, if you prefer to make your booking via reception, please assist us by checking online for available appointment times prior to ringing the practice. Other non-urgent enquiries can be emailed to reception@burtonst.com.au, and repeat script and referral requests to scriptsandreferrals@burtonst.com.au.

For urgent enquiries, please call 9458 4558 or 0480 259 053.

Flu immunisation - updated information as at 10/04/2020 -

 

Getting the flu and COVID-19 at the same time can make you very ill, so the Department of Health is recommending vaccination against influenza as soon as it is available. As a result, the demand for influenza vaccination has increased, and vaccines are now in short supply. Please be patient as we manage this situation to ensure our most vulnerable patients are vaccinated.

We are taking measures to minimise patients unnecessarily being exposed to other patients who are unwell as well as maintaining social distancing. Therefore, if you only require your flu vaccination, you will be provided with an appointment in our ‘flu clinic’. Please note that the doctor is not available for a lengthy consultation at this time, and if you need to discuss anything else, you may need to make another appointment. This is to prevent delays and limit the number of patients in the waiting room at one time. For this reason, please avoid arriving too early for your appointment, otherwise you may be asked to wait in your car.

If you are over 65 or severely immunocompromised, please let reception know when making your appointment as some of our GPs have dedicated ‘flu clinics’ to protect you further.

In 2020, influenza vaccines funded through the NIP are available to the following groups due to their increased risk of complications from influenza.

  • Children aged 6 months to less than 5 years
  • All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
  • Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)
  • All people aged 65 years and over
  • People aged 6 months and over with medical conditions which increase the risk of influenza disease complications

This year all WA primary school-aged children can receive the influenza vaccine for free.

A charge of $14.00 will apply to people not eligible for government-funded vaccines.
