COVID 19 and Flu Vaccines

By January 22, 2021Uncategorized

We are stepping closer to being able to administer the COVID vaccine. Please note that we have NOT been given permission to run Drive Through Clinics and so the administration of the vaccines will be done within the surgeries.

At the Lighthouse Surgery/Narooma Respiratory Clinic we expect to receive the first delivery of vaccines in the week commencing 22nd March.

In Bermagui, we are expecting our first delivery in the week commencing 29th March.

We have not set firm dates for the clinics as yet due to the lack of confirmation of dates and the quantities of vaccines that will be made available to us.

However, we will commence waiting lists for both surgeries. Please call 4476 2999 for Lighthouse Surgery or 6493 4903 for Bermagui Medical Centre to have your name added to the waitlist for Phase 1B

We invite you to register with us but please be mindful that we are at the mercy of the Federal Government in terms of delivery and quantity of the vaccine as well as the Phase 1B guidelines.

We have also started a waitlist for the Flu Vaccine.

We will endeavour to give our community as much information as possible as this process progresses.

Below you will find links with both a copy of the intended roll out schedule, as well as some FAQ’s to hopefully help in the meantime
