Moderna Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccination
The newest COVID-19 vaccination will soon be available at Healesville GP Clinic.
The Moderna Bivalent vaccine provides better protection against COVID-19 variants currently circulating in the community.
Those aged 5 to 15 are eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose if they:
- are severely immunocompromised
- have a disability with significant or complex health needs
- or have severe, complex, or multiple health conditions that increase the risk of severe COVID-19
Those aged 16 years and older are eligible if they have completed your primary dose course of COVID-19 vaccination at least 3 months ago.
If you have had COVID-19 you should wait to be vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine for 3 months after your confirmed infection.
The date you had your last COVID-19 vaccine is on your COVID-19 digital certificate.
We provide cervical screening. Patient details will be given to the Victorian Cervical Cytology Registry (phone number 9250 0300). When you have a cervical screening test, your details are automatically forwarded to the Registry by the laboratory that reports on your test.
Immunisation is the only effective way to protect your child against many harmful diseases. It means your child will be far less likely to catch the disease if exposed to it. This benefit far outweighs the very small risks involved. Immunisation is also important to eradicate the disease. If enough people are immunised, then infection will no longer be spread in the community and the disease dies out. Healesville GP Clinic offers all scheduled childhood immunisations. Vaccines are kept on site. If your child is due for immunisations please make an appointment to see your Doctor. It is important to ensure that all your child’s immunisations are up to date. Details will be sent to the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register.
