Our dedicated team of nurses offer vaccination multiple days every week.
AstraZeneca is an effective and safe vaccine. Statistically in Australia the risk of dying from a blood clot due to an AstraZeneca vaccine is 1 in 1million (risk is even lower after second jab). The risk of dying for an unvaccinated individual contracting Covid can be as high 1 in 40!
Both Astra-Zeneca and Pfizer vaccines have similar 90% effectiveness at preventing severe disease (hospital or ICU admission).
For those aged 12+ you are eligible for a Pfizer vaccine.
At the Belmore Surgery we can provide Covid19 vaccination to patients who do not usually attend our surgery. Whilst we prefer that you see your own GP we understand there can availability issues.
Flu vaccinations are also available. There must be at least a 1 week gap between the covid and influenza vaccinations.
Free flu immunisations are available for people over 65 years or under 5 years. Other children and adults may still have the flu needle but it is not government funded.
An additional needle, the new Pneumonia vaccine (Prevenar 13) can be given to those aged over 70.
