We are currently providing the Pfizer vaccine as a booster shot. You are eligible if you have a recognised immunodeficiency condition or if you have had the second of your primary course more than 5 months ago. 

Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are recommended for pregnant and lactating women. They can be given at any stage of pregnancy. Real world experience suggests they are safe, and may possibly confer benefit to the baby through passing of antibodies through the placenta or breast-feeding. 
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, you are part of a priority group and may be vaccinated with Pfizer


Influenza Vaccines available 

We now have both private and government funded stock for those who want the flu vaccine.
Private cost is $20 each, gov funded is free – just book in with our friendly nurses either Geena or Helen and they will take care of you.
The current information is that a flu shot and Covid shot need to be at least 1 week apart.
