    COVID Vaccination Clinics – Update 2

    COVID Vaccination Clinics – Update 2

    Finally, our first COVID vaccine supplies arrived on Wednesday the 14 April. 50 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were delivered to the Moruya surgery, and 50 to Broulee. We have a COVID vaccination clinic today, Monday 19 April in Broulee and Tuesday 20 April in Moruya. This will exhaust our current allocation and we are not sure when the next delivery will come.  Please continue to look online for COVID vaccine clinic availability.

    Please don’t despair. The government planning of the vaccine rollout has been a bit of a shambles and recent reports of side effects have further complicated matters. We are digesting all the latest vaccine supply and clinical information as it comes to hand and when we do have adequate stocks of the vaccine our GPs will be able to answer your questions before your vaccination. That is our job.  

    At the moment there is no urgency, we are very fortunate.  In the meantime, we are well underway with our flu vaccination effort, so if you have not had flu vaccine yet please make an appointment. The flu vaccine needs to be given at least two weeks away from a COVID vaccine. 

    Please keep looking at our website for updates. Bookings for flu and COVID vaccine clinics and regular appointments are best made online please.  Our Reception team are answering over 500 calls per day – so please do not call – I hope this message answers your COVID vax questions and we can let our receptionists get on with the usual general practice business.  Dr Neil Starmer – Partner GP
