We are running these clinics on different days, depending on stock arrival of the vaccine. At the moment we are doing the clinics on some weekdays and some weekends. We will be doing a regular, dedicated COVID Vaccine Clinics based on stock of the vaccines.
4. How is the COVID Immunisation clinic run?
When you arrive, please check in at the front desk. The doctor or nurse will call you in after that. You will be asked some questions and given some information about the vaccine. You will also be able to ask any questions. Once you have consented to have the vaccine, the doctor or nurse will give you the vaccine. You will then be asked to wait in the waiting room for 15 minutes, after which a staff member will let you know that you can leave. Before you leave, you will be asked to book in for your second dose as well.
5. Is there a cost?
There is no cost to the patient for coming to this clinic. When you come to the clinic, you will be assessed for suitability for the vaccine by the doctor/nurse. If you are deemed as suitable to have the vaccine, it will be administered to you, with your consent. If you are assessed as not suitable to have the vaccine, then the vaccine will not be administered to you. Either way, there will be no cost of any sort for the patient.
Because these changes have occurred rapidly, we welcome any feedback that you may have as we continue to respond to this ever-changing climate.
