Covid-19 vaccination notice
We are pleased to announce that Southern Peninsula Family Medical has been chosen to provide Covid-19 vaccinations as part of phase 1b of the vaccine roll out. We are initially being allocated 50 doses of vaccine per week and this is expected to ‘ramp up’ as domestic production of the vaccine increases.
We are now able to consider your booking for a Covid vaccination and would prefer you to make your booking online by clicking on the “Book Appointment” button above. Before doing so, please check your eligibility to receive vaccination under the 1b phase of the vaccine rollout by using the following eligibility checker:
Once you confirm your eligibility, click on “Book Appointment”, select General Practice > Covid-19 vaccinations and select your date and time. As only limited amounts of vaccine are being made available initially, we will be releasing more appointments as we receive each batch.
Finally, below is a document describing what to expect after vaccination. Please read this prior to your appointment and bring any questions with you.
If you wish more detail about the vaccine or the rollout process, please refer to the following Government website:
