Important Patient Notice
As of 23/9/2021
Under the current situation that NSW is facing with Covid-19, we are encouraging our patients to come in and get vaccinated.
Pfizer bookings now available. Bookings are available online only, please do not phone us to make a booking. Astra Zeneca bookings are available by request only; bookings are via phone. For all Covid vaccines at our practice you need a Medicare card.
Due to the high demand for vaccinations we are unfortunately only taking bookings for Covid vaccination for our existing patients
Remember to wear your mask and keep social distancing even if you are vaccinated. If you are worried about receiving the vaccination feel free to book in to have a chat to your doctor to ask questions for your specific situation. Keep safe everyone.
