Ontario Medical Clinic will be receiving the Covid-19 vaccines (Astrazeneca) from the 23rd March, 2021. We have been allocated a certain number of vaccines and appointments will only be made available when we have received the vaccines at the clinic. We will make the online booking link available on our website once we commence bookings.
The first patients eligible for the vaccine are those in phase 1B. You can check to see which phase you will be eligible in by using https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility.
Two doses of the vaccine are required 12 weeks apart.
The following links contain important information that you will need when you have your Covid-19 vaccination.
Please read through and complete the Consent form for Covid-19 vaccination and bring this to your first vaccination appointment. If you are unsure of how you should complete this form or have answered yes to any of the questions on page 2, please call and speak to our reception staff. We may need to reschedule your appointment or make an appointment for you to speak to a doctor before you can have your vaccine.
The information sheet Preparing for Covid-19 vaccination will help guide you on what you can do to be ready for your appointment.
On the day of your appointment please make sure that you wear a short, loose sleeve so that the site for vaccination is easily accessible. If it is a cooler day you can wear a jumper or jacket over the sleeve but please make sure that it is one that is easy to take off.
Please also find attached information sheet.
