Rozelle Total Health wants to ensure you have the latest news and updates about the COVID Vaccines. 

We understand there have been daily announcements from the Government in relation to the changing ATAGI advice and the current COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney and we want you to ensure you have a clear understanding of the current guidelines. (NB Federal eligibility may differ from NSW Health targeted initiatives and we as GPs are bound by the federal guidelines.)

The following dates mark the next phase of aged based eligibility for the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine, regardless of LGA and underlying conditions. 

  • From 30 August 2021 all people aged 16-59 will be eligible for the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine. 
  • From 13 September 2021 children aged 12 to 15 years will also be eligible. 

 

RTH will ensure we have enough doses set aside for our patients under 18 who do not have the option of an alternative vaccine at this stage. 

To ensure that everyone has a chance to get up to date and plan ahead- these appointments will be made available for online booking on Monday 30 August 2021 via our website. Please only call reception to book if you are struggling with the online booking system.  

You can find the full list of current eligibility here.

Please note if you do not meet the criteria for the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine you can access AstraZeneca. We must follow the government guidelines and will not deviate from this.

All persons aged 18 years and over are able to access the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine. You can now access this vaccine at pharmacies. The ATAGI advice has changed from a 12 week interval for the second dose to 4-8 weeks due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 within the community of Greater Sydney. If you have already had your first dose of AstraZeneca and are booked in for your second dose at the original interval of 12 weeks feel free to This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you have any further questions or concerns please book an appointment with your GP.

The ATGAI have released new recommendations regarding the AstraZeneca vaccine. You can read their statement here

The recommendation states those under the age of 60 years are to receive the Pfizer vaccine. At this stage the government has not yet supplied us with Pfizer. You will be notified via email if this changes. We continue to administer AstraZeneca. 

We are in the process of contacting patients who are under 60 years who are booked in for their first dose of AstraZeneca. We will be cancelling these appointments as per the recommendation. 

Please note the ATGAI have stated if you have already received your first dose of AstraZeneca it is advised that you also receive your second dose unless you’ve had a severe reaction. 

We apologise for any inconvenience.
