GP EAST will commence COVID vaccinations from mid April . Patients will be contacted as per the government guidelines for vaccine rollout. The first group to be vaccinated will be patients over 70 and patients with chronic illnesses. Initially, vaccination roll out will be slow due to limited availability but no one will miss out on a vaccination. Due to the fortunate COVID situation in Australia , there will be plenty of time to vaccinate everyone .
IF YOU HAVE RETURNED A CONSENT FORM WE WILL BE IN TOUCH OVER THE COMING WEEKS TO ARRANGE AN APPOINTMENT.
As we are a small practice with a limited weekly supply of the AstraZeneca vaccine and limited resources we will endeavour to vaccinate the most vulnerable people first. If you are a regular patient of our practice, >70yo, or >50yo with chronic health conditions in the eligible Category 1B and have returned a consent form you will be prioritised.
If you are <50yo, in Category 2A, 2B, 3A we encourage you to follow the Australian Government advice regarding vaccine suitability for your age group and seek a vaccination centre that can accommodate you when more vaccines become available.
Thank you for understanding.
