NOTICE DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
In order to improve the safety of the community, of our patients and of our staff during the Coronavirus pandemic, Avoca Street Medical Centre will need to implement some temporary changes to our general practice services. Telephone consults are available and preferred.

However, patients will be able to book a face to face consultation (provided they have no symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat or runny nose OR have had a NEGATIVE COVID TEST in the previous 5 days). Face to face consultations will be kept strictly within 10 minutes to stay under the duration outlined by the NSW Health definition of "close contacts".

ALL PATIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR FACE MASKS WHILE IN OUR OFFICE

Please call us on (02) 9399 3335 for an appointment.
Patients with any symptoms are encouraged to directly attend the COVID Clinics for testing. Both open 7 days per week:

  1. Prince of Wales Hospital (Building 14B, Ground Floor, Avoca Street, Randwick)
  2. Sydney Children's Hospital - under 16 year olds (Hospital Road, High St End)

Patients who have tested negative but with ongoing symptoms will be able to attend our practice for assessment after advising staff.

Meanwhile, please heed current public health pandemic advice: stay inside your home, wash hands, observe physical distancing, regular exercise and maintain mental wellness.

    Australia’s Immunisation Registers

    This update provides information on the work being undertaken to expand the scope of Australia’s two existing immunisation registers; the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register and the National Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination Program Register, to improve vaccination coverage rates across the entire Australian community.

    What changes are being made to the registers?

  • From 1 January 2016, the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) will broaden to capture immunisation information for young individuals under the age of 20 years, enabling
    implementation of the Australian Government’s No Jab, No Pay measure. The ACIR currently records vaccinations given to children aged less than seven years.
  • From September 2016, the ACIR will expand further to become the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) to capture all vaccines administered throughout a person’s life (birth to death), given through General Practice and community clinics. This will include all vaccines funded under the National Immunisation Program, as well as private vaccines given through general practice.
  • This whole of life register will be ready to support the zoster virus vaccine being available on the National Immunisation Program (NIP) for 70 year olds (including a catch up programme for 71-79 year olds), which is planned for November 2016. Other vaccines funded for adults under the NIP, which include seasonal influenza vaccine and pneumococcal vaccine, will also be captured by the AIR.
  • From the 2017 school year, the HPV Register will be expanded to become the Australian School Vaccination Register (ASVR), which will capture all adolescent vaccinations given through school programmes. Vaccines to be recorded include varicella (chickenpox), the diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) booster, and the HPV vaccine. This will provide tools such as recall and reminder systems to improve adolescent vaccination rates.

    What are the benefits of these changes?

  • Expansion of the registers will broaden and improve immunisation data capture. This will lay the foundations for future work to move towards one integrated system, that captures and reports on all vaccines given in Australia from birth to death, providing one ‘front door’ for consumers and vaccination providers.
  • This is an important step to improve immunisation rates overall, by better understanding the current coverage of vaccines. At present, the coverage of vaccines given to adults is not well understood as there are no comprehensive national data collected for these vaccines.
  • Vaccination providers will have secure access to a range of due and overdue reports, which will allow them to monitor vaccine uptake in both young children and older Australians. This will help to identify areas of low coverage within Australia and enable targeted effort and information to boost immunisation rates in these areas.
  • Individuals will have access to a record of all vaccines recorded in the AIR and ASVR.

    Information on the No Jab, No Pay measure and register expansions will be updated on the Immunise Australia website at www.immunise.health.gov.au

  • The information in the above were collected from the internet,
    either from government websites or from reasonably reliable health information sources.
    They are for general information only and should not replace the need of seeking medical care during illnesses.
