Currently, there has been a lot of discussion about the Covid-19 Vaccine. General Practices across Australia have been asked to help provide the Covid Vaccine. Gasworks Medical Practice has been approved to be a vaccination provider for the Covid-19 vaccination from 5th April 2021. We have been allocated 100 vaccines on a fortnightly basis.
