5 STEPS :

✅Get your booster! We are amongst those that can help and we are taking bookings.Pharmacies and other vaccination hubs can also help with vaccinations. Search out those possibilities too and if you find a booking elsewhere please cancel with us so we can book some one else.We are also starting the vaccinations for children as soon as we have supplies – said to be the second week of January. We do not want to let anyone down and are waiting to have these in the fridge BE AWARE, SUPPLY IS AN ISSUE. We plan for every child’s booking to be able to supply the second dose as well.

✅If you have no symptoms, wear a mask every time you go out of your home and maintain 1.5m social distancing.

✅Do not come to the practice if you have any cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, etc). We can provide phone and video consultations. If you have symptoms, GET A PCR TEST, stay home and isolate until you get your result OR until you are completely symptom free (at least 7 days).Most people who have symptoms and are diagnosed with Covid will be able to stay at home with a home-based care plan in place.

✅If you are really unwell, go to ED with a mask on & where you may be admitted and will be tested.

✅Do a Covid test prior to visiting vulnerable people or entering a high risk facility (eg. hospital/aged care -Ask them what they accept, PCR or Rapid antigen test )

Our priority is maintaining a general practice service in parallel with continuing the vaccination programs.

Please be aware :

– Of the supply and demand issues- they are real.

– There is now limited rapid antigen tests available.

– The PCR testing process has been under huge demand.

– Personal protective equipment is increasingly in short supply

– NSW Health is under pressure too

– Our receptionists are extraordinary people. Continue to be respectful to them as always 🙏
