Springs Medical has joined the Pfizer vaccine rollout starting this week.
There is a steady supply of vaccines being delivered to the clinic for all eligible people wanting to be vaccinated against COVID-19. (To check your eligibility for the Astrra Zeneca and Pfizer vaccines, use the Vaccines Eligibility Checker.)
Vaccination clinics are currently running Wednesday afternoons, Saturday afternoons and all day Sunday at the Daylesford clinic at 10 Hospital St.
Bookings available via the Springs Medical website, HotDoc or by calling reception on 5348 2227. Depending on your vaccine eligibility, appointments are available this weekend. Additional appointments often become available for upcoming clinics and these are immediately opened up in the online booking system.
Springs Medical has extended clinic hours to cope with demand for vaccinations. To support the vaccination rollout, regular staff are working additional shifts and additional administrative and medical staff have been recruited.
“I am so proud that Springs Medical is part of the COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout program” said Emma Johns, General Manager of Springs Medical. “Everyone involved in the planning and operation of our clinics – our directors, team leaders, GPs, nurses, admin/reception staff, cleaners – are committed to providing this service for our communities. It is a really big job for GP clinics all across Australia and it isn’t over yet. Thank you to our community for your continued support.”
If you have already had an initial vaccination, second dose bookings are automatically made by clinic reception staff. Patients will be advised of their second dose appointment either in person (at the first appointment), by SMS or by phone. Appointments for a second dose can be rescheduled if necessary.
Patients are also strongly encouraged to get a flu vaccination but this should not be within two weeks of a COVID vaccination. Bookings for flu vaccination can be made with your regular GP at any of the Springs Medical sites. If you have any questions, you should speak with your GP.
If you have questions, you should seek information from reliable sources. Make an appointment to discuss any issues with your GP. View on-line resources available a the Australian Government Department of Health or the Springs Medical website.
