COVID-19 Vaccinations

Magill Family Practice is committed to the provision of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination to our community for all individuals aged 60 years and over. Booking is available online on Hotdoc as well as by phone (08) 8331 9061.

Please only book when are you ready to have the vaccine. If you are unsure or have questions, you should visit health.gov.au/covid19-vaccines for more information or speak to your GP.

Remember you will need 2 vaccines 12 weeks apart to be fully protected.

We will be giving vaccines as quick and efficiently as possible. Please arrive on time for your appointment. Dress appropriately with a short sleeve ready to roll up. Do not come if you are sick. It will be fast moving so we can help protect the community as quickly as possible.

The recent changes from ATAGI recommends the Pfizer vaccine as the preferred vaccine for people aged under 60. The incidence of Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome is significantly lower in people aged over 60 and the benefits of the vaccine still vastly outweigh any risk for people in this group as they are much more likely to become seriously unwell if they catch COVID-19.

People who have had a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and did not experience any serious adverse effects, will be offered a second AstraZeneca dose. The ATAGI advice remains unchanged that it is safe to have the second dose of AstraZeneca and that an alternative vaccine should not be used at this stage for the second dose if aged under 60 years.

Patients under the age of 60 should book their vaccination at the Pfizer vaccination site. Bookings can be made through the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker and Clinic Finder.

Recommended minimum vaccine interval between COVID-19 and Influenza vaccine has been changed to 7 days. This interval can be shortened in special circumstances based on a clinical assessment.

Important COVID-19 Notice for Patients

COVID SAfe Check-In

Please note we have implemented COVID SAfe Check-In with QR code upon entry to the practice.
The primary purpose is to be able to enhance contact tracing and keep our community COVID safe.

Please download the free mySA GOV app on your smart phone.
If you don’t have a smart phone, a manual check-in will be required.

Find out more about the COVID SAfe Check-in system.

Face-to-face consults

With the easing of restrictions, we are now able to return to face to face consults.

When attending the clinic for face to face consult, please:

  • Answer screening questions
  • Have your temperature check
  • Wear a mask if requested by staff
  • Use hand sanitiser
  • Stay 1.5metres away from other people
  • Limit the number of attendees to only those who are required to be seen by the doctor

 

If you and your family have any cold or flu like symptoms, no matter how mild they may be (e.g. fever, cough, running nose, sore throat, difficulty breathing or loss of sense of smell or taste) it is vitally important that you inform us at the time of making your booking, so we can make suitable arrangement for you to be seen by our respiratory pod doctor.

When attending the respiratory pod, please:

  • Inform the reception staff on your arrival
  • Wear your mask and use hand sanitiser
  • Return and wait in your car and the doctors will come to you
