COVID VACCINES
BRINDABELLA FAMILY PRACTICE IS A COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC.

Patients aged 18 years and above are now eligible to receive the AstraZeneca vaccination, after an assessment of risk versus benefit has been conducted by a General Practitioner. If you are in the 18-59 age group and wish to be vaccinated, please book online or call 6299 6990 to discuss.

If you are aged 60 years and above, you can continue to book AstraZeneca as per our usual processes.

On Thursday 19 August the Prime Minister announced the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccination will be extended to 16 to 39 year olds from Monday 30 August.

Due to a high demand for Pfizer vaccines at our practice, we are now only able to accommodate our regular patients for Pfizer vaccination bookings. Standing appointments for new patients in September and October will remain.

We will continue to book AstraZeneca vaccination appointments for all groups.

If you are a new patient and would like to register for the Pfizer vaccine, please book an appointment at one of the NSW or ACT government vaccine centres online.

The COVID vaccines and influenza vaccines

It is as important this year as any to consider having a dose of the seasonal influenza vaccine. However, scheduling to have this and a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on the same day is not recommended. Instead, you should plan on a minimal time between your vaccines of 14 days.

Your seasonal influenza vaccine can fit in any order with your 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine: you could have it prior to your first COVID-19 vaccine, between your first and second doses, or on completion of your doses. The main thing is to keep in mind the need for a 14-day interval in between each vaccine.

Along the same lines, if you are due for another vaccine (for example, a hepatitis booster or pertussis vaccine), you should contact us as soon as possible to book that in, so that it is out of the way at least a few weeks before you become eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

There are some circumstances in which your doctor may consider shortening the interval between these two vaccines. If you think this might apply to you plan an appointment with your GP to discuss your situation.
