Banyo Clinic began COVID-19 vaccination clinics in March 2021. These Vaccination Clinics are bulkbilled, as such we can only provide COVID-19 vaccines to patients who have a current Medicare card or DVA card.*
Please book a regular appointment with your doctor if you are undecided and would like to discuss the vaccine, or if you need to discuss anything else.
Vaccine eligibility is a decision made by government and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in conjunction with the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI). This decision relies on constantly evolving data regarding vaccine efficacy and safety, and can often change.
You can get a COVID-19 vaccination and a flu vaccination at the same time.
