The latest outbreak of COVID-19 community transmission in Sydney is a grim reminder that we aren’t immune to this pandemic. Please urge your patients aged 60 and over to book their AstraZeneca vaccine – whether it be for their first dose or a strong reminder for their second dose.
For those due for their second dose of AstraZeneca, there is an even lower possibility of getting a blood clot from the second dose, than from the first dose.
The Australian Government’s ‘Weighing up the potential benefits against risk of harm from COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca has information you can use to help your patients make an informed decision.
There is plenty of AstraZeneca available in the Healthy North Coast region. Your patients should book through the Vaccine Eligibility Checker.
