Covid Safe Summer – additional messages
While we celebrate Melbourne’s and Victoria’s incredible efforts to reduce the numbers of infections, we must acknowledge that Coronavirus is here to stay (at least until the vaccine roll-out). This means that we are keeping some of our procedures from restrictions in place. You are encouraged to book a phone consultation where possible. If you do come into the clinic, we ask that you please wait in the car until called, wear a mask at all times, and you will need to have your temperature checked and use hand sanitiser before entering. Anyone with infective symptoms of any kind will need to have a Coronavirus test and a negative result before coming in. We aim above all else to keep you safe, and to all come out the other side stronger than ever. Keep well and have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season.

The following special groups are eligible for the government funded vaccine; children aged 6 months – 5 years; seniors over 65 years; anyone with a chronic health condition; all ATSI people and; pregnant women.
