Mansfield Family Practice is pleased to advise that we are an approved vaccination provider for the COVID-19 vaccine AstraZeneca.
People over 60 YEARS of age are now eligible to receive the AstraZeneca Vaccine.
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the COVID-19 Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine as the preferred vaccine for those aged 16 to 59 years, but the AstraZeneca vaccine can be provided to people aged 18 to 59 years of age. To get vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine, you will need to make an informed decision by speaking with your vaccine provider. Some conditions may mean it is not suitable for you and it is important that you discuss this with your healthcare provider. Second dose appointments will be booked 8-12 weeks after the 1st dose. If you have recently had your 2021 FLU Vaccination – please wait a minimum of 7 DAYS before having your COVID-19 Vaccinations.
