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.

    Zostavax - Shingles Vaccine


    The shingles vaccine, Zostavax®, has been approved to be placed on the National Immunisation Program (NIP), to be provided free of charge from 1 November 2016 to people aged 70 years, subject to vaccine supply. There will also be a five year catch-up program for people aged 71 – 79 years.

    What is Shingles?
    Shingles is a painful rash caused by the varicella-zoster virus which is the same virus that causes chickenpox.

    The shingles rash develops into itchy blisters usually occurring on one side of the body either on the face, chest, back, abdomen or pelvis, and can take several weeks to settle.

    Around 1 in 100 Australians who are older than 50, are thought to have had shingles at some stage.

    Shingles diagnosis
    If you have had chickenpox in the past, the virus stays in the nerve cells near the spine, but is not active. Shingles occurs when the virus becomes active again.

    You cannot catch shingles from someone who has shingles. But, if you have not had chickenpox you can catch chickenpox by being in direct contact with fluid on the blisters of someone who has shingles.

    Almost all people have had chickenpox by the time they turn 40 and may be at risk of developing shingles. Sometimes shingles can occur with no known trigger. However, shingles is more likely to occur if you:

    • are older than 50, particularly those who are older than 80
    • have HIV and AIDS
    • have had an organ transplant
    • have recently had a bone-marrow transplant
    • have a condition which requires treatment that impacts the immune system, such as chemotherapy for cancer
    • are experiencing physical and emotional stress.


    Over-the counter medications such as paracetamol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, can be used for pain relief. If over-the-counter medicines aren’t controlling your pain, your doctor may prescribe other medicines such as opioids, anti-depressants and anticonvulsants .
