As previously mentioned, we will be a COVID vaccine centre. However, we have been informed by the Commonwealth Department of Health that we will be receiving vaccines in mid-April 2021.
However, the supplies in the beginning of the rollout will be very limited and may be as little as 50 doses per week. This supply issue may persist for some weeks. Thankfully we are in a very fortunate situation in Australia with respect to COVID cases- so there is really no great urgency.
We will keep you informed as we know more. In the meantime please keep an eye out on our COVID vaccine website page which we will keep updated as we know more. Please check this page rather than calling the practice.
We will also keep you updated about flu vaccines, which we expect to receive towards the end of March. You may want to consider having the flu vaccine first whilst waiting for the COVID vaccine, as these cannot be done together. We also have a Flu vaccine webpage set up for information. We will send an email update when we receive flu vaccine stock.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
