Pfizer vaccinations: now available!

From Monday the 20th of September, Your Doctors will be providing Pfizer vaccinations.
  • Priority at this early stage will be given to those aged 12-17, pregnant women, and breastfeeding women.
  • Due to very high demand, there are currently only a limited number of appointments available for patients new to our practice.
  • ALL patients must bring a Pfizer vaccination consent form - please see below.
  • Please call any of our practices to book an appointment.

Information for patients aged 18 to 60

Your Doctors values the opportunity to provide Pfizer vaccinations to 12-17 year olds: the group who have experienced the most restricted access to Covid-19 vaccines to date.  As opportunities arise, and supply increases, we will be able to provide Pfizer vaccinations to all under 60 years of age.  This will be reviewed on a regular basis, with announcements made through our social media platforms.

AstraZeneca remains available to all people aged 18+ at our practices.

New Patients

  • Due to high local demand there are limited appointments available for new patients at this point in time.
  • New patients are requested to provide an up-to-date Health Summary from their usual treating doctor - please bring this to your first appointment/vaccination.

When should I get my 2nd shot?

Your Doctors recommends a:
  • 6-8 week interval between AstraZeneca doses.
  • 3-4 week interval between Pfizer doses.
An appointment for your second shot will be made at the time that you receive your first.

Do you have flu symptoms?

NSW Health recommends that anyone with symptoms gets tested at a COVID-19 clinic.

Symptoms include fever, cough, sore/scratchy throat, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or unexplained fever. You should self-isolate until you receive your test results.
