South Coast Medical as a group of clinics are involved in administering covid vaccines as part of the national vaccine rollout. We are now administering AstraZeneca vaccines for any patient over the age of 18 years. We are administering the Pfizer vaccine to any patient over the age of 12 years.
ONLINE BOOKINGS ARE NOW AVAILABLE: We will be operating clinics within business hours and will also run limited clinics afterhours (evening and Saturday afternoons) at some of our clinics.
Vaccines will not be administered in standard appointments as they are multi dose vials, they will need to be administered in a multi person clinic setting (patients seen in room privately).
South Coast Medical is providing a limited number of 'walk in' Covid Vaccine appointments at our Dromana (Wed and Thurs), Capel Sound (Tues and Thurs) and Rye (Mon,Wed, Thurs, Fri) clinics. These are available between 10am and 4pm
