Heard on the radio today that anyone who hasn’t received a vaccine or had actual COVID infection in the past 6 months will be able to get a booster before winter, regardless of how many doses they have had.
Pharmacies will be providing the boosters.
Lots of changes happening all at once.
eScripts are now available. These are sent straight to your phone as an alternative to printing out on paper. No more lost scripts.
Conditions apply: the items must be within the standard drug database to be available on eScript.
If you have an arrangement with your doctor to be sent a script then you will not need to come in and collect it.
Speak to your doctor about an eScript before she prints the script.
Over-the-phone consultations were brought in by Medicare over the COVID period, allowing for isolation and reducing exposure to viruses.
As of January these are only covered by medicare for those who are actually isolating at home, with COVID 19 infection.
We can still consult over the phone outside medicare but this would entail a fee and there is no rebate back on it, so most people will need to come back to regular consults at the surgery.
The Grange Medical Centre is an independent and privately owned practice, established in Cooloongup in 1991, offering a full range of General Practice services.
