COVID-19 Vaccine (12.04.2022)

Our practice is an approved COVID-19 vaccination site and is currently administering the Pfizer and Novavax vaccines. If you are aged 5 years and older, you are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Novavax is currently approved for individuals 18 years or older.

The Australian Government have announced that individuals who are severely immunocompromised should receive a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Click here to find out more.
Boosters and winter doses are available for eligible individuals. Please visit our COVID-19 Vaccine page for more information.

Influenza Vaccination (29.4.2022)

We will be holding Flu Clinics from Tuesday 3rd May 2022.

A vaccination clinic appointment is for the administration of vaccination only. If you have other issues you need to discuss, please make an appointment with your usual doctor.

In 2022, government-funded influenza vaccines are available to the following groups due to their increased risk of complications from influenza:

  • People aged six months to less than five years
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged six months and over
  • Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)
  • People aged 65 years and over
  • People aged five years and over with medical conditions which increase the risk of influenza disease complications.
  • Primary school-aged children (≥ 5 years to Year 6)

A charge of $15.00 will apply to people not eligible for government-funded influenza vaccines.

You can receive your influenza vaccine at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer 12+ only); however, the influenza vaccine should not be delayed if you are not yet eligible for your COVID-19 vaccination. If you want to receive both vaccines together, please inform our reception staff or select the Fluvax + COVID Vax appointment type if booking online.

You can book online at www.hotdoc.com.au/medical-centres/bentley-WA-6102/burton-street-family-practice/doctors or by phoning the practice on 9458 4558.

To minimise the number of patients in the waiting room at one time, please do not arrive too early for your appointment; otherwise, you may be asked to wait in your car.
