Practice Fee Changes

Dear Patients,
Please be advised of fee changes effective from 1st July 2024. For more information, please refer to the Practice Fees section below.

Booster doses

The new Pfizer XBB.1.5 COVID-19 Vaccine is available 

All adults can get a booster if it’s been 6 months or longer since their last COVID-19 booster or confirmed infection (whichever is most recent). Boosters give extra protection against severe illness from COVID.

The Australian Government has accepted a recommendation about COVID-19 vaccines. All adults aged 75 years and older should receive an extra 2023 COVID-19 vaccine dose if six months have passed since their last dose.

This particularly includes people at higher risk of severe illness, like:

  • adults aged 65-74 years
  • everyone 18 years and over with medical comorbidities, disability or complex health needs.

Children and young people aged 5 to 17 years can consider getting a booster dose if:

  • they have a health condition that put them at risk of severe illness, and
  • if it’s been 6 months since their last dose or COVID-19 infection.

Your doctor can help you decide if your child should receive a booster.

Booster doses are not recommended at this time for children and adolescents under 18 years of age who do not have any risk factors for severe COVID-19.

All vaccines are approved for use in Australia and continue to give strong protection against serious illness from COVID-19. Omicron-specific bivalent vaccines are preferred for boosters.

The date you had your last COVID-19 vaccine is on your COVID-19 digital certificate.

Appointments for these vaccines alone are bulk billed.

Offering Pfizer bivalent BA4-5 booster & Flu vaccines. Please call or book an appointment online.
