COVID-19, as everyone knows by now, is a highly infectious virus which is responsible for millions of deaths worldwide since its emergence in 2018. Not only deaths but of course the economic, social and mental impact has been enormous. The best treatment against COVID-19 is prevention!
This can be done by practical measures like wearing a mask, reducing contact with people, and maintaining good hand hygiene. Or it can be prevented by immunisation against it. Immunisation is the single best way we can return to normal life and stop this pandemic. Although not 100% effective, real word data from around the world is demonstrating the effectiveness of vaccines in preventing COVID-19 and also stopping severe disease and hospitalisation. At the end of the day, this is the aim of a high vaccination rate. To reduce hospitalisations so that when we interact normally although the virus may still spread if we’re immunised it will not overwhelm the hospital system and cause unnecessary deaths that we have witnessed in robust health care systems like the USA, Italy, UK and rest of Europe.
There are currently 2 highly effective and safe vaccinations available, Vaxzevria (Astrazeneca) and Comirnaty (Pfizer). There is a third vaccine set to arrive soon in Australia, Moderna. We will keep you updated when Moderna arrives. At the moment we offer both, Vaxzevria (AZ) and Comirnaty (Pfizer), vaccinations at our clinic. We run vaccination sessions nearly every day and do it in an efficient, safe and convenient way. The immunisation is given by a doctor and a nurse is present to help in the process. To date we are proud to say that we have administered over 6000 doses at our clinic. You heard that correct, SIX THOUSAND DOSES!!!
We encourage everyone who is eligible to book in to get vaccinated. If you are a regular patient of the clinic, you can call reception and book in. If you don’t attend our clinic regularly, please book online via the eligibility checker.
The sooner we all get immunised, the sooner we can finally get back to the things we love and still be safe doing it! Join the fight!
