Covid advice for the next few weeks.
4th covid boosters have been advised for most people now. A booster is specifically advised for over all over 50s, and younger people of indigenous heritage or with serious health conditions. For others between 30 and 50 a booster is available if desired, although not formally recommeded by the health authorities. We have them available so please ring to make a time. If you have had a covid infection you need to wait three months before a booster.
Antiviral drugs have also been expanded and available to more people, including everybody over 70, most people over 50 with health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity , and some younger people as above.
Note that the antivirals need to be started ASAP after infection, so it is up to you to get tested at the first sign of symptoms and contact us or the covid line 1800 960 933 as soon as you have a positive test to arrange the drugs. We do not have the resources to contact you - if you want antivirals you need to contact us or NSW health if we are too busy or closed.
Influenza vaccine is also available - this year will be a bad influenza year.
Remember that your best chance of avoiding death, serious complications or long term problems from Covid or influenza is by being up to date with your immunisations, and wearing a mask indoors.
