We are please to announce that Lockridge Medical Centre will be commencing Pfizer vaccination for patients aged 16-59 years and Indigenous patients over 12 years commencing late September 2021.

We will not be taking bookings until our stock arrival is confirmed.  We ask for your patience and recommend that you check our website for updates or contact our reception late September 2021.

  1. AstraZeneca COVID Vaccine

We are continuing to provide AstraZeneca vaccination for patients aged 60 years and over.

This vaccine is undergoing a name change and will be known as Vaxzevria.

If you are over 60 we encourage you to come in and have your vaccination to ensure you have protection during future COVID outbreaks.
