COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINIC UPDATE standard

Due to uncertainty with supplies and in order to allow us to prepare for the vaccination of 5-11 year olds in January, our vaccination will close over the Christmas period. The Clinic will be closed from 24th December -10th January 2022. When this decision was made the interval for the 3rd dose was 6 months which meant most people in Mansfield were unable to receive this booster until January. However this has now changed. Currently there is a 5 month interval required between your second dose and your booster. Third doses will be available between the hours of 2:00-4:00pm Tuesday - Thursday on a walk in or booked appointment basis: https://cvms.powerappsportals.com/ or by ringing 1800 675 398. From January 12th we look ...

Welcome Back Aged Care Visitors. It has been too long. standard

From 6pm Friday 29th October changes will apply to visiting Buckland House and Bindaree. Of course there are still some rules to follow. Each resident is allowed up to five visitors per day Visitors are not required to be vaccinated, though we strongly encourage them to be so to protect not only themselves and the resident they are visiting but also other residents and staff in the facility. Where visitors are not fully vaccinated, that is, have received two doses of COVID-19 vaccine, visits are to take place either outdoors or in the resident's room. Unvaccinated visitors are not to enter communal areas. Because of this requirement we will need to check the vaccination status of all visitors. Visitors are required to wear ...
