Covid Vaccination Update:
Almost 8000 of our patients have had their first Covid vaccination and almost 1000 patients have also had their second dose.
We are now commencing to invite patients in the governments priority Group 10, who are aged 48 and 49 years old.
If you are in groups 1 – 9 and have not received your first dose vaccine, please contact us. We are also inviting patients, where their second dose vaccination is due, to book into a clinic.
For all patients we want to reassure you that we will contact you as soon as we have supplies.
We continue to vaccinate more of our patients every week and we really appreciate your support and patience in these difficult time.
