COVID-19 vaccine third doses & boosters

We have recommenced COVID-19 vaccination clinics to provide booster shots for our existing patients whose second dose was at least 5 months ago. If you are (or soon will be) eligible, please contact Fountain Street General Practice on 8303 2900 to book an appointment. Clinics are being held Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

People who are severely immunocompromised are recommended to have a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 2-6 months after their second dose. If you believe that you fall into this category and have not yet received a third dose, please contact the practice to make an appointment with your usual doctor to discuss your eligibility.
