We have been included in the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.  We have commenced our clinics for those who qualify for phase 1B.  The government arn't supplying us with enough vaccines to meet the demand, we don't know if or when that will change.  If you can have a covid vaccination elsewhere (such as mass injection sites) please go ahead.  Our website will be kept up to date and we encourage you to check that way rather than calling us.  Flu vax clinics have commenced.

We'll be encouraging patients to make their appointment via our website or the HOTDOC app.

Please follow the below link to see if you qualify for phase 1B https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/covid-19-vaccines/getting-vaccinated-for-covid-19/when-will-i-get-a-covid-19-vaccine
