COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that has not been previously identified in humans. COVID 19 is closely related to SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) coronavirus and in the same family as MERS (Middle East respiratory syndrome) coronavirus.
The virus is most likely spread through:
- close contact with an infectious person
- contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze
- touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person, and then touching your mouth or face.
The best defences against COVID-19 are:
Practice Good Hygiene.
Wash your hand frequently with soap and water
Cover your cough/sneeze and dispose of tissues
Avoid contact with others if you are unwell
Practice Social Distancing
The more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
- stay at home unless is absolutely necessary
- keep 1.5 metres away from others
- avoid physical greetings such as handshaking, hugs and kisses
- use tap and pay instead of cash

This is a Bulk Billed service.
People who get vaccinated are at lower risk of getting an infection (and developing serious disease) than those who do not.
Getting a flu shot also means you help to protect other people, including those who are too sick or too young to be vaccinated, as well as vulnerable groups such as babies, people over 65 years and pregnant women.
The more people who are vaccinated in the community, the less likely the flu will spread.
Flu clinics are usually held prior to the onset of Winter in April and May each year.
You can make an appointment via our receptionist closer to these months on (02) 6030 5500.
