Timing of COVID19 Vaccination Booster shots after a positive COVID test or COVID infection

Timing of COVID19 Vaccination Booster shots after a positive COVID test or COVID infection

If you have had COVID19 infection you should continue to obtain all the recommended of COVID19 vaccinations doses.

However you are recommended to follow the Queensland Health advice regards timing:

For consumers with known COVID-19 on either RAT or PCR (regardless of symptoms):

  • Defer vaccination in people with a confirmed infection [positive RAT or PCR test] until resolution of acute symptoms or four weeks after initial positive test (whichever is later). This is to avoid onward transmission and confusing the differential diagnosis. 
  • Vaccination after resolution of acute symptoms but prior to four weeks can be considered on a case-by-case basis based on the consumer’s risk, other factors (like employment requirements) and clinical status. However, this is a clinical decision which should be made by an appropriately trained medical or health practitioner. 
  • If a patient tests positive for COVID-19 between their first and second doses, or between their second and booster dose, the patient should delay next dose until they have recovered from the acute illness. “

The majority of patients who are due a Booster dose will need to wait 28 days from the date of the positive test [PCR or RAT], but may need to wait longer if they have not fully recovered.

DO NOT attend a vaccination clinic prior to 28 days after a COVID19 diagnosis unless you have discussed it with a Reydon Street Medical Centre doctor.

If you feel you need vaccinating sooner, please book an appointment with your doctor.

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.
