Covid Clinic update :   Thankyou for your patience , we are ringing patients to make appts to our covid clinics each day , working our way through our waiting list . 
However , we are seeing some of these clinics  with no shows .. 
Please make sure you keep your reminder and attend .  A non attendance fee will apply , but more importantly this wastes  a appt another patient could have had .

We have had lots of questions , hope this helps ?
Can I have Pfizer Vaccine at FMC ? 

No , at this time we only have access to Astra Zeneca  for the over 50 yr olds .

I have had my name on the wait list for ages and have not heard anything ?  

We have had a huge number of patients request a Vaccine , we are working our way through the list , we will ring you when we can get you in .

Why is it taking so long ? 
The covid vaccine is not like flu vaccines where we can order bundles of several hundred in one order upon demand .  SA Health limit the number of  covid vaccines we can order at any one time , initially it was only 100 vaccines , only recently  been increased to 200 per order ( and only one order per week ) 

The first thing   for us to consider when planning covid clinics ,  is the balance of utilising Drs and Nurses appts for Covid Vaccinations  so that we dont reduce our regular Doctors appts  and regular Nurse appts for those that are unwell .

And the second thing to consider is that we are able to balance  our available staff in three months time to do the second dose .

From June onwards , we have many more covid clinics of 20 patients per clinic . These will be scheduled  4 days per week to help us work through the wait list .

Thankyou in advance for your patience .

Have you had your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine❓

You’ll need to get your second vaccine dose of the same vaccine within the recommended time frame.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) recommend:

▪️ AstraZeneca vaccine – 12 weeks (can be given from 4 – 12 weeks if needed)
▪️ Pfizer vaccine – 21 days (can be given from 21 – 42 days if needed)

The vaccines have proven to be most effective when given at the recommended interval.

If you are concerned about the timing of your COVID-19 vaccine, you should discuss this with your GP.
