COVID-19 Vaccination

Lockridge Medical Centre is now offering AstraZenica and Pfizer COVID vaccinations.

AstraZenica is available to our patients over 60 years of age.

Pfizer is now available and approved for all individuals 12 and over.

You can book your vaccination online via our website or call the practice to book.

Please ensure that you have read the relevant information and consent form below prior to attending for your vaccination.  You do not need to sign anything.

Please see your doctor if you wish to discuss any aspect of the vaccines prior to booking an appointment.

COVID Vaccine Boosters

From Monday 8th November 2021 Covid vaccine booster doses will be available for all individuals six months from second dose.

The recommended vaccine is Pfizer.

Studies from overseas have shown that immunity from all vaccines wanes over time.  Having a booster dose helps maintain protection against COVID-19.

This will be especially important when WA borders open in coming months.

See link below from ATAGI with more detailed information.

If you received your second dose at another vaccination centre, please bring proof of your vaccination when you attend for your booster.
