Influenza immunisation has never been more important than in 2020.
This year’s flu vaccinations will take more planning to work around the limitations imposed by COVID-19.
To help, Carolyn Lloyd, Immunisation Coordinator at NNSWLHD, has recorded a 15-minute webinar on vaccinating during COVID-19. Her presentation is packed with useful tips and information to help you.
Carolyn herself is happy for you to contact her directly if you would like specific advice about vaccinating at your practice. You can reach her at [email protected] or phone 1300 066 055.
Dr Brett Lynam has kindly shared the approach he will use at his practice:
Brett would like to point out that his clinic allows an ‘outside’ waiting room and they have sufficient nurses to run it as set out – this will not necessarily work everywhere. Thanks Brett, great to be able to learn from a colleague!
Vaccines are expected to be available from early April.
