COVID vaccination Boosters recommended a 5 months after the second dose for adults

COVID vaccination Boosters recommended a 5 months after the second dose for adults

In case you missed it, the latest recommendation is for adults (aged 18 years and over) to get a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine 5 months after the 2nd dose.

You will need to check the date you received your second dose and arrange you vaccination when you fall due.

Unfortunately, this change in the recommendation has come at a difficult time. Like many clinics, we have reduced or stock of COVID19 vaccinations to avoid wasting expired vaccines over Christmas and New Year. We will not be able to re-start vaccinating until after 10 January 2022.

We recommend you check when you are eligible (ie 5 months after your second dose) and use the Government’s Eligibility checker to find a vaccine centre that is open –  click here Vaccines Eligibility Checker (healthdirect.gov.au). Check soon as even some of the Queensland Health Walk-In vaccination centres are planned to close over the Christmas / New Year period.

How to check you date of vaccination

  1. Check your Digital COVID19 vaccination certificate 
    https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/covid-19-digital-certificate-proof-your-covid-19-vaccinations. 
    Follow the link to learn how to get your certificate. You can even save it in your Apple Wallet or Google Pay phone apps.  
  2. If you cannot access this online, telephone the Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 (Monday to Friday 8 am to 5 pm).

Please do not ring your clinic as this diverts resources away from caring from other patients.

With COVID19 infection cases increasing locally, please book for telephone or video consultations in preference to face to face as much as possible, and follow our safety rules about entering the building.

Reydon Street Medical Centre is moving on 14 February 2022

Reydon Street Medical Centre has a long history of providing high quality health care from trusted doctors from 2 Reydon Street on the corner of Newnham Road and Reydon Street in Upper Mt Gravatt.

The current health crisis means that it is no longer sustainable to continue this tradition from its original premises. To ensure we are more resilient and remain able to provide continuity of care to our patients in the face of sickness or furlough leave we need to be part of a larger organisation.

The great news is the legacy will continue and on 14 February 2022 Reydon Street Medical Centre will join the existing Holland Park General Practice at 1173 Logan Rd, Holland Park. This is part of the IPN Medical Centres network and is located just five minutes from our building.

We intend to provide the same high quality care from doctors you know and trust from more appropriate premises. You should also see the same friendly staff to look after you at the front desk.

Continuity of care and the security of our patient records is our priority. Patients records will be transferred automatically, so your doctor can continue to access them. Given the Holland Park General Practice is part of the IPN Medical Centres network, you can be assured that your health records and personal information will remain safe and secure.

We will continue to book appointments with your chosen doctor, but from Monday 14 February 2022 onwards, all existing and future appointments will take place at Holland Park General Practice.

We look forward to continuing to serve our patients from our new home.
