A milestone for our fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the Gordon Doctors will begin Covid-19 Vaccinations next week from 31 Mar 2021. We will run several clinics every week for the rest of the year, so there is plenty of time for you. You can call us on 02 94999999 to book (but not all at the same time please!) and online bookings are opening soon. Please keep an eye on our website www.gordondoctors.com or follow us on facebook to find out latest news.
If you unsure or have questions to ask, please book an appointment with your doctor. There is also a multitude of information available and an eligibility checker at www.healthdirect.gov.au/covid-19-vaccination .
Currently, we are in phase 1b. * This vaccine is not recommended for people under 50 years old. People who qualify for a vaccine are:-
people 70 years of age or older;
health care workers; (and workers in health care facility)

younger people with an underlying medical condition, including people with a disability;
critical and high risk workers, including Australian Government officials about to be deployed overseas on official government business; and
all phase 1a groups; quarantine and border workers, frontline health care workers, aged care and disability residents; and aged care and disability staff.
Qualifying underlying medical conditions include the following:-
If you qualify due to your occupation, you will need to forward proof of employment to us at firstname.lastname@example.org before your appointment, as required by the Department of Health. If you are not a current patient, we will notify you of other information and documents required.
Now, there are several reasons not to panic or rush:-
We are doing the Covid-19 vaccinations for the rest of the year.
Our supplies are guaranteed by the government.
Our medical team is committed to being here for our patients.
Currently, Australians are very lucky to enjoy almost no case numbers.
We cannot dispute that we are quite safe.
Our lovely reception staff will be here to help you with bookings at all opening hours of Mondays to Fridays 8am-7pm and Saturdays 8am-12pm, or at anytime, when online bookings open.
Keep well and we will see you at our clinics at some point.
