It is extremely likely that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is going to be with us forever. In order to return to a lifestyle that approaches an acceptable “normal”, the majority of our citizens will need to be vaccinated against this virus. While vaccination is not perfect it will almost certainly protect us from serious illness or death and markedly reduce our chance of passing this virus on to others who are more vulnerable.
The mixed messaging in mainstream media and outright misinformation in social media has caused distress and confusion and we remain alarmed and saddened to hear the fear behind comments and questions from our patients. We condemn conspiracy theories and the search engine algorithms that lead sensible people down narrower paths that blind them to the facts.
We strongly recommend vaccination. Every adult must, of course, decide for him/herself. There is no perfect choice in life, everything has potential for benefits and risks. You may not even be conscious of how many risks you take in the decisions you make every day. We hope that each of you will do broad research and bring your questions to discuss with your trusted doctor in order to make the wisest decision for you, your loved ones and your community.
Our COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics
We encourage all our eligible patients 5 years and older to be vaccinated in our Clinic. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your vaccine, we recommend booking in a consultation with your GP and answer any questions that you have prior to your vaccination date. For further information about COVID-19 vaccinations including the benefits and risks please read the information available from the NSW Department of Health.
We have now opened our vaccination clinic for kids aged 5 -11 and COVID-19 Dose 3 (Booster) for patients who have had their previous 2 doses at our clinic and has been at least 4 months since Dose 2.
If you are a current patient (attended our practice for a consultation with a doctor in the past 2 years), you can now book your appointment for your vaccination online or call us on (02) 9627 0600.
