We are a COVID vaccination site and are vaccinating with Astra Zeneca.
Please be patient if calling us as we have been inundated with phone calls regarding the vaccine. Government advice on 11 June 2021 suggests patients bring forward the 2nd dose to 6 weeks after the 1st dose because of the current Sydney outbreak. Bringing forward the 2nd dose may compromise the overall effectiveness of the vaccine. We are setting up extra clinics and if you would like to change, please contact us. Reception will compile a list of patients and we will call you back with your new appointment time. If you are having a 1st dose appointment, we will still book you in for a 12 booster dose as we hope the current outbreak will be under control in the next 6 weeks, in which case staying with the recommended 12 week schedule will improve the effectiveness of the vaccine.
We run vaccination clinics from The Cottage Surgery & The Corner Clinic with short vaccination only appointments. We will not be getting Pfizer vaccines till October.
The vaccination clinic is for people ready to be vaccinated.

The vaccine stimulates the body’s immune system to produce antibodies against the virus. None of the ingredients can cause COVID-19 or any other infection.
The vaccine will be injected into your upper arm – please wear loose clothing which can expose your arm easily. As with any vaccine it may not protect everyone. It is not yet known how long the vaccine protection will last.

Commonly: Tenderness, warmth, redness and itch at the injection site.
Headache, fatigue, muscle aches, joint pains, fever, nausea.
