COVID-19 Vaccine Practice Information
GPs on Curzon to be a Covid-19 Vaccine Site
The Federal Department of Health has approved GPs on Curzon to be a COVID-19 vaccine site. They have not let us know the exact date that this will commence. We are hoping to have some vaccines available from Mid-April onwards. Our practice has only been allocated 50 AstraZeneca vaccines per week. Hence, this will mean it will take time to phone or message our patients as to when they are eligible to book for a vaccine. We ask for your patience and understanding during this time.
The first group of patients we are allowed to vaccinate are group 1b (over 70-year-olds and patients with an eligible medical condition).
Please check your Eligibility on the Government website:-
There are other alternatives in Toowoomba available for vaccinations if you feel you need a more urgent AstraZeneca Covid 19 vaccine. The Respiratory clinic on the Corner of James and Neil St (4632 4888), the Respiratory clinic at the Toowoomba General Hospital (4616 6000) and the Respiratory Clinic at Carbal Medical Centre Kearney Springs (4580 1400) have been allocated a larger number of AstraZeneca Vaccines and may be able to vaccinate eligible patients sooner.
Please look out for an SMS phone message or a phone call from our friendly staff when we can notify you that you are able to book or come in to GPs on Curzon for your Vaccine.
Respiratory Illness Precautions
We all need to remain alert and vigilant when it comes to respiratory illnesses.
We understand that this may be difficult when your own child is sick – but we ask that all parents and patients respect the Federal Health Departments guidelines on how to manage respiratory illnesses.
At GPs on Curzon – we ask that you still make an initial Telehealth Consultation with a doctor if you or your child has a Cough, Fever, Sore throat or Runny nose. The doctor can then guide you on the best way to approach the illness, guide you to the right testing locations or organise for you and your child to come into the practice in the right circumstances.
GPs on Curzon has not been given funding for the full Protective Equipment needed to see all patients with Respiratory illnesses.
There are a number of other alternatives in Toowoomba who have been given funding for the full PPE and to do full respiratory examinations. You and your child can ring and book with any of the Respiratory Clinics in Toowoomba or present to the Emergency departments available (Toowoomba General Hospital Emergency Department or the St Vincent’s Private Emergency Centre).
The Respiratory Clinics available are The Respiratory clinic on the Corner of James and Neil St (4632 4888), the Respiratory clinic at the Toowoomba General Hospital (4616 6000) and the Respiratory Clinic at Carbal Medical Centre Kearney Springs (4580 1400). Parents and Patients can call these places directly or book online.
