COVID-19 vaccination

COVID-19 VACCINATION:

COVID-19 vaccination (AstraZeneca) is available to all adults aged 60 and over. Those under 60 requesting AstraZeneca vaccination are also able to book during these sessions.

COVID-19 Vaccination with Pfizer vaccine for those people under 60 years is also available.

People over the age of 60 are not eligible for Pfizer vaccine unless provided with a letter from the Victorian Specialist Immunisation Service stating that Pfizer is necessary.

We have no discretion in the supply of vaccine for Pfizer.

People requesting a vaccine appointment need to have a current Medicare card.

If you do not have a Medicare card, you will need to seek a vaccine appointment at a State run hub, as we are unable to report your vaccination without Medicare details.

Please make your vaccine appointments online through this website or via the HotDoc app.

COVID-19 Arrangements:

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to see patients at Hogans Road Medical Centre. We request that all patients, and accompanying persons over the age of 12, wear a mask and  and use the hand sanitiser provided at the entrance. Thank you for your co-operation.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we also welcome the use of telehealth consultations which require patients to make an appointment online or by ringing Ph. 9749 6777 and speaking to one of our receptionists.

The doctor would be ringing the patient on the nominated phone number instead of a consultation in the consulting room. There are also facilities available to conduct a video consultation if needed.

If management involves prescribing a script for medication, then that script can either be left at reception for pick up, or it can be faxed and posted to a pharmacy, or to the patient’s home address. Scripts can also be sent via SMS to a mobile phone.

COVID-19 precautions are always a high priority at the clinic, and our waiting and consulting room furniture is cleaned twice daily and we have restricted the patient numbers in the waiting room to 12 which is the legal requirement for physical distancing.

We hope all of our patients are safe and aim to be guided by all precautions advised by the Health Department to maintain safety and good health.
