COVID-19 Vaccine

 

- UPDATE -

Our practice is now approved to vaccinate people aged 50 years and over. Click HERE to book an appointment.

We are an approved vaccination provider for COVID-19 vaccines. 

The vaccine will be available to those most in need of protection first according to Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine National Roll-out Strategy. Therefore, priority will be given to vulnerable and priority Phase populations.

 YOU MUST HAVE A VALID MEDICARE CARD TO RECEIVE YOUR VACCINATION 

Making an appointment

To enable us to follow the recommendations for obtaining consent, after vaccination monitoring and to maintain physical distancing, COVID-19 vaccines will be administered during specific clinics.

Please note the doctor will not be available to discuss other issues (including prescription requests) during your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

We ask your co-operation to ensure the practice remains within the recommended guidelines.

Patients who have not been seen at our practice before will need to bring their Medicare card and photo identification.

You can book an appointment online here or with one of our reception staff on 9458 4558.

We cannot do your vaccination if you do not have a Medicare card. You will need to receive your free COVID-19 vaccination at a general practitioner led respiratory clinic or at a state vaccination clinic.
