Dapto Healthcare highly recommends patients falling into the 2a phase for their COVID vaccination to seek their vaccines from elsewhere at this point of time due to our long waiting list of people still in the 1B phase.
2a phase includes Adults aged 60-69 years; Adults aged 50-59 years; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18-54 years; Other critical and high risk workers; As our vaccines will be in limited supply, and the government is staggering the roll-out of vaccinations, patients will be contacted in accordance of their eligibility status. Immunisations will be provided by appointment and in accordance with the governments roll-out program.
