We have vaccination clinics several days per week and the current wait for Astra Zeneca vaccination less than 3 days.
AstraZeneca is an effective and safe vaccine. Statistically in Australia the risk of dying from a blood clot due to AstraZeneca vaccine is 1 in 1million
Compare this to the risk of dying if you were unvaccinated and contracted Covid there is a 1 in 40 chance of death.
The first dose gives you about 30% protection from becoming unwell from
Covid and the second dose if given 12 weeks later increases this to about 80%. (Less if given earlier) Both AZ and Pfizer vaccines are similarly 93% effective at preventing severe disease (hospital, ICU).
We are now booking Pfizer however due to a supply limitation of 150/week so please book in to avoid disappointment.
For those aged 12-59 - you are eligible for a Pfizer vaccine.
For those aged 18+ wishing to get the AstraZeneca vaccine -you may book an appointment here this week. Please note the government has mandated that all folk aged 60 or over are only eligible for the Astra Zeneca Vaccine, NOT PFIZER.
At the Belmore Surgery we can provide covid19 vaccination to patients who do not usually attend our surgery. Phone 67627933 for an appointment.
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.
