FLU VACCINES 2021:
We currently have supplies of influenza vaccines for those over 65, for those under-65 with chronic conditions that are eligible for free government vaccines and private vaccines.
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.
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.
From November 2016, a vaccine against shingles (Zostavax) has been made available at no cost for people aged between 70-79 years.
Please contact us if you would like to arrange an appointment to have the vaccine.
