Welcome to Newmarket Family Doctors
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT FLU VACCINATIONS
24/5/2019 As of this morning we have just been told that there is a Worldwide and Australia wide shortage of influenza vaccinations and hence we have now run out of stock for the immediate future. We are positively livid about this as we were reassured by our suppliers that this would not happen considering it has happened in previous years. We have checked many pharmacies in the area and they are in the same predicament. We are working with several suppliers to source stock and at this stage we have been given a tentative date of late June to get new stock. We understand this will cause frustration to our patients but we ask for your patience as this is outside of our control and is an Australia wide problem and to be honest it pisses us off too!
We do have government stock for children 6 months to 5 years as well as people with eligible health conditions and people over 65.
For everyone else, please keep an eye on our Latest News section to the right of this page where we will announce when stock is available again. Although there has been some early cases of the flu, the peak season is August to September and getting the vaccination closer to the season is not a bad thing to do. Additionally for those who have had flu vaccinations in prior years, it is likely that you still retain some immunity.
We are pleased to announce that we have a new female doctor starting with us in Mid May just in time for the busy winter period. Dr Belinda McCormack is a very experienced doctor relocating to our practice from the southside where she has worked for over 11 years. Please check out her profile in our staff section.
