  • Only one parent/guardian should accompany a child into the session
  • People must NOT attend the session if they or their child have symptoms of a respiratory infection (such as fever, or a sore throat, or a runny nose, or shortness of breath or cough) or have returned from overseas in the past 14 days or have been told to self-isolate
  • Appointments are booked to minimize patient contact and interaction
  • Vaccination appointments are for vaccinations only. For other matters please book a telehealth appointment before or after a vaccination appointment if needed.
