COVID-19 Vaccine Information
COVID19 Vaccines Update
We are receiving a lot of calls with regards to the covid19 vaccines and their availability.
We would like to confirm that Seven Hills Family Doctors has been approved to be a covid19 vaccine provider, however we will not have supply until approximately mid April.
At this stage the government strategy is to provide the vaccines to GP practices in phases. The national stock is limited, so the amounts will be shared across many clinics. Therefore, each vaccine provider will only receive limited supplies.
We will notify patients again when we have a clear date when stock will be on hand for us to commence vaccinating.
For more information, please check the Covid19 Vaccination information website which also includes an eligibility checker on https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/covid-19-vaccines/getting-vaccinated-for-covid-19/when-will-i-get-a-covid-19-vaccine
