1000+ COVID-19 vaccines delivered in the last 2 weeks!
In light of Sydney’s latest COVID-19 outbreak, Hunters Hill Medical Practice has been ramping up our COVID-19 vaccination program to meet recent patient demand for vaccination. Practice doctors, nurses and staff are working extra hard to deliver as many vaccines to as many people as quickly and safely as possible.
Before the recent outbreak in Sydney, HHMP nurses were delivering about 30 COVID-19 vaccines per day. This has been able to be ramped up to about 120 vaccines per day in the last few weeks. During the last week we delivered 527 COVID-19 vaccines and the week before that 517 vaccines. This is an amazing effort of which the whole team is very proud. Our aim now is to further increase the number of vaccines delivered week on week to help do our part in tackling Sydney’s COVID-19 outbreak.
The latest ATAGI advice indicates that vaccination, with any vaccine is recommended unless contraindications exist. This means that those who are as yet unvaccinated, are recommended to get vaccinated with the vaccine available to them (usually AstraZeneca) rather than waiting for another vaccine (eg: Pfizer or Moderna).
HHMP COVID-19 vaccine Clinic
The HHMP vaccine clinic is the mainstay of the HHMP COVID-19 vaccine program. The clinic operates 5 days per week, Monday to Friday and will soon be running some Saturday sessions. Usually AstraZeneca vaccines are delivered 3 days per week and Pfizer vaccines 2 days per week. This is based on vaccine availability.
AstraZeneca vaccines can be booked online via the Book-Now button on our webpage. Pfizer vaccines need to be delivered to those who meet the eligibility criteria and can be booked on 9817 2080. If you do not meet the current Pfizer eligibility criteria we can add your name to our waiting list and inform you when you become eligible.
Please be patient with our staff as we are experiencing very high call volumes and are simply trying to follow government set eligibility criteria.
