RAPID ACCESS INFLUENZA SESSIONS FOR OVER 65 year old INFLUENZA VACCINATIONS COMMENCE ON TUESDAY 31 March 2020
We received our first batch of Government funded Influenza immunisations for patients over 65 years old, and will run a rapid access immunisation session on Tuesday 31 March 2020
Please note the influenza immunisation for over 65s is different to the others -it is only available from Queensland Health via GPs. At this stage it is preferable to wait a few days until the correct vaccine arrives.
We wish to help all our patients access influenza vaccination in a timely, efficient and safe manner
We will run some quick access influenza only sessions .
These quick access sessions are not suitable for people who:• Are already unwell with fever, respiratory symptoms • Who have contact with confirmed COVID cases • Who are required to self-isolate for 14 days due to travel outside of Australia or on Cruise ships within the last 14 days.• If a household member is a suspected case, you are required to be isolated. This will have been determined by the public health unit on a case-by-case basis. • Cannot stand for 40 minutes or cannot walk on uneven ground
These will take place outside so we can maintain social distancing.Please see the photos below for showing the route you will need to be able to walk on.
Due to the way these are taking place we will not be able to deal with any other issue.Patients attending the rapid access influenza-only sessions will need to book another consultation /telephone consultation for all other mattes
The consultation will be billed direct to Medicare on your behalf.
We will announce further sessions for influenza immunisations as stock is made available
