ZOSTAVAX (SHINGLES)

 

Currently recommended by NSW Health for patients aged 70 to 79 years of age.

The risk of developing shingles and it’s potential complications are not pleasant, so why not book in and get immunised?

By having this vaccination, you strongly reduce the risk of developing shingles, or if you still do develop it, it will be at a significantly reduced severity, with a reduced risk of complications as well.

Please book in to have a conversation with one of our doctors for more information on how you can protect yourself from this potentially debilitating illness.

 

CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATIONS

 

We provide the currently recommended (by NSW Health) childhood vaccines from 6 weeks of age to age 4 years

If you’ve misplaced your blue book you can find the National Immunisatin Schedule for NSW here.

There’s also a handy app to download for your smart phone where you can keep track of which ones you’ve done and will remind you when your child’s next immunisations are due. You can find the link here; Save the Date to Vaccinate!

We are also able to update your child’s blue book and will upload the vaccination information straight to Medicare.

 

SCHOOL IMMUNISATIONS

 

In case your school-aged family member has missed any vaccinations at school, we are able to provide them at our practice.

Appointments are also available on Weekends or after school hours.

The information will be uploaded to Medicare via the Australian Immunisation Register.

 

ANTENATAL

 

  1. Whooping cough (Pertusis) immunisation is highly recommended to have during the pregnancy, ideally between 20–32 weeks.
  2. Influenza immunisation
  3. The Covid- 19 vaccination.

The recomended by RANZCOG (Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) and ATAGI (Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation) for pregnant women to receive the Pfizer mRNA vaccine (Comirnarty) is stated here.  This is because the risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 is significantly higher for pregnant women and their unborn baby.

It is also recommended to consider the immunisation as part of pre-pregnancy care.

Feel free to book an appointment to discuss this further.

FAQ’S

Q.1 What’s the difference between a vaccination and an immunisation?

A.1 A vaccination is the substance that is injected (or ingested, or inhaled) into your body to provide an immune response.

An immunisation is the response your body has to that substance (vaccination) which then helps to boost your immune system against the specific illness.

 

Q.2 If I have an immunisation, does that mean I will never catch that illness?

A.2 An immunisation to a specific illness or disease will mean that your immunity is equipped to counteract the illness in question. Occasionally you may still fall sick to the illness that you have been immunised against, but it is usually a much less severe form of the original illness or a different subtype. In addition, not everyone’s immune system or body responds the same way and occasionally you may need an extra booster. It is best to discuss your specific circumstances with your doctor.
