Zoster (Shingles) Vaccine

Herpes zoster (Shingles) is commonly a painful and sometimes debilitating medical condition. As many as one in three people will have Shingles in their lifetime. Zostavax Vaccines are funded (free) for patients aged 65. There is a catch up programme until the end of 2020 for those aged 66 to 80 years old and the vaccine is currently free for this age group also. Unfunded Vaccines are $240.00. Please book a nurses appointment with reception.

Influenza Vaccine

Flu vaccines will NOT be available until mid April. We will be running pre-booked flu clinics in our car park again this year. We will contact our over 65 year old and eligible patients as soon as vaccines arrive. Please do NOT phone us in April for flu vaccines as this overloads our reception team.
Online users who are aged over 65 will be able to book online from mid April. All others will be able to book online once our vulnerable groups have received their vaccines. We will let you know.

Measles is a highly infectious viral illness

Measles is very infectious. If you think you have measles symptoms or believe you have been exposed to measles - TELEPHONE US anytime 24/7 for advice. Do NOT visit the Medical Centre. Immunisation is the best defense. Ring us to make an appointment. There is now a good supply of vaccines.
