Picture: Tuesday 23 March 2021 marked our first day administering Covid -19 vaccination. Our first age group to receive the vaccine were those over 90 years of age. Dr Mary Price administered our first vaccine to the lovely Doreen Crosbie as seen in our photograph.
We are receiving supplies of Pfizer vaccine, to be administered as your 4th dose (second booster). Currently this booster is recommended for those 65 years and older, residents of aged care or disability care facilities, severely immunocompromised patients 16 years and older and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 50 years and older.
The 4th dose must be given 4 months after your last booster, no sooner. If you are severely immunocompromised (ie have been eligible for all previous boosters) and over 16 please call the surgery for advice on making your booking. Our patients in aged care and disability facilities will be vaccinated on site as organised by the facility. Other eligible groups will be sent an SMS when stock is available.
