PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE ANY OF THE PFIZER VACCINE. WE WILL ADVISE OF AVAILABILITY IN DUE COURSE ONCE WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH.
Face Masks are Mandatory up until the 23rd July. They must be worn when you are entering the clinic for your appointment.
The TGA has not approved the mixing of both the AstraZenica vaccine and the Pfizer.
It is not recommended that you get your 2nd AstraZenica dose any earlier than 10 weeks apart and this is usually for people who need to travel. This is because it lessens the efficacy of the vaccine.
Medicine on Second can confirm that we will be working in accordance with Queensland Health and Government guidelines to roll out Phase 1b of the Covid-19 Vaccine commencing 22 March and Phase 2A commencing Monday 17th May 2021.
We will be running Covid-19 Vaccination clinics for the AstraZenica Vaccine only. You can phone reception for an appointment or go onto the Department of Health Vaccine Eligibility Checker below to check your eligibility and make an online booking. If you have any questions about receiving the vaccine please make a face to face or telehealth appointment with your GP prior to your vaccine as we will not be able to offer consults during the vaccination clinics. We are adding more clinics regularly to help with the demand for the vaccine.
Please be patient with us at this extremely busy time. Our reception team get inundated with phone enquiries and we would ask you to please be respectful and understanding of our staff. We are doing our very best to ensure we work as per government guidelines while maintaining our regular appointments for our patients.
Thank you for your support and co-operation at this time.

As of 18th June 2021 the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) have reviewed their advice on the AstraZenica Vaccine. They have recommended that Pfizer is the preferred vaccine for people aged under 60 years. The recommendation for those people who have had their first AstraZenica Vaccine in the under 60 age group is “they should feel very confident” about getting the second dose if you did not have any serious side effects from the first dose. Please see the link below for further information from ATAGI on this advice.

The team at Medicine on Second are still taking the health and welfare of our patients and staff very seriously.
We are still offering Telehealth appointments for any patients who are experiencing cold /flu like symptoms including sore throat, runny nose, fevers or cough.
We are asking patients when they enter the clinic that they read the A frame sign and answer the questions honestly. If you have any of the symptoms listed, have travelled overseas, have been in a known “hotspot” or have had contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19, please remain outside and either ring us from there or your car or make yourself known to staff and they will attend to you and give you a mask and ask you to remain outside.
We are ensuring that our seating is meeting social distancing requirements.
If patients arrive with a third party (husband, children, relatives) we will ask if they can remain outside if at all possible to limit our numbers.
We are regularly disinfecting surfaces and medical equipment.
Please use the automatic Hand Sanitizer available as you enter the clinic.
Together we will adapt to these unusual and unsettling circumstances, maintain high-quality health care, support each other and keep each other safe. We would like to thank each and every one of your for your support and co-operation.
