vaccination clinics

Vaccination Clinics are organised where possible as they are an efficient way to service our patients, to have appointments available and to be bulk billed. Sometimes they are run by doctors and nurses, doctor only or nurse/nurse immuniser only depending on the vaccine and its complexity. All our vaccination clinics have been carefully designed by our clinical team to provide the best care for our patients in private rooms with personal attention by your doctor/nurse and time for observation after, with full facilities and emergency experience in anaphylaxis reaction.

 

Please note: Some vaccines are not  suitable for clinics, where they can be booked directly with our experienced Practice Nurses. Clinic Vaccines can also be booked directly with our Practice Nurses but outside of clinics, there will be a Nursing Fee charged.

Covid Pfizer Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself from serious illness or death from COVID-19. Here's why it's still important to get vaccinated:

  • Preventing severe illness: Vaccines are your best protection against severe illness, hospitalisation, and death from COVID-19.

  • Protection for everyone: Vaccinations are particularly important for those aged 75 years and over or those with severe immunocompromise that increase their risk of severe COVID-19.

  • Keeping your guard up: Protection from COVID-19 wanes over time. Regular vaccinations, tailored to your age and health needs, ensure ongoing protection.  

You are encouraged to discuss the vaccine options available with your doctor/nurse. You can also use the booster eligibility tool to determine whether you are eligible for a COVID-19 booster vaccination.
