Bulletin : 14  April   2021

1. Clarkson Family Practice is offering    Covid 19  vaccinations  to  patients over 70 and selected patients with increased vulnerability due to serious underlying illness. 

We will receive 50+ doses per week .  The Vaccine  is free and the  visit is bulk-billed.   Please keep an eye on the press as to when you will be eligible for a vaccination . Currently no one under 50 years of age will be offered the Astra-Zeneca vaccine until   the controversy  about the clotting  problem has been resolved .  Pleqase see  the statistics for the risks  on the Covid 19 page in a PDF file there. 

 

I am asking everyone to do the following   to help expedite  the vaccination process: 

1. Read the information on the Covid 19 Page - the second tab above. 

2. Book an appointment for the vaccine if  you do  not get a call from Estelle to invite you to do so.

  Consent forms and eligibility  questionnaires  can  be found on the    Covid-19 Vaccine Tab above 

Informed Consent for vaccination can be given verbally. 

 You may alternatively  print a consent form  off if you wish, fill it out as far as you can and bring them with on the day of vaccination to expedite the process.   

2. Private  Influenza vaccinations  will become available from 21 March 2021 - these are  for   patients 13  years old   ( year 7)  to    64 years old who do not qualify for a free vaccine.  Primary school children to year 6 have been included in the  Medicare-funded influenza vaccine group. 

3. State Funded Flu Vaccine - commencement date not yet known . Please keep an eye on this page.

Ethical dilemma voiced by many Christians over the cell lines used in vaccine production. I think this article gives a responsible and balanced view :

Please Look at The New Notice Board on the 3rd  tab above.

 It has more extensive   information  on the possible roll of Bovine   Colostrum supplementation in helping to prevent contracting Covid-19 by increasing Secretory-IgA antibodies.
