Welcome to the Blackburn Specialist Centre
We pride ourselves on a high level of professionalism whilst offering a warm and caring environment to our patients, staff & Specialists.
We have a broad range of highly regarded consulting Specialists and Allied Health Professionals. Most of our Specialists require a referral from your GP, but many Allied Health Professionals do not need a referral. Please telephone us on 9875 1161 if you are unsure whether you need a referral.
Please check this page regularly for updated information regarding Covid-19 Vaccinations – please DO NOT PHONE THE CLINIC to ask about COVID-19 Vaccinations, we will communicate new information as it becomes available on this page of our website.
The first stage of vaccinating (Phase 1a) will be provided through hospitals (not general practices so Blackburn Clinic won’t be involved) and will target the First Priority populations of aged care (residents & staff), quarantine and border workers and frontline healthcare workers. We hope to be included in Phase 1b which will cover adults aged over 70 years, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people over 55 years, other adults with disability or an underlying medical condition at increased risk of severe disease, critical and high risk workers and other health care workers.
Not all general practices will be able to provide Covid-19 Vaccinations, and the Government has not yet decided which clinics will be designated to do this. We regret that we cannot make appointments for or take names of people who would like to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
More information about Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine Roll-Out Strategy is available here.
16 Feb 2021- The TGA has approved use of the Astra Zeneca COVID-19 Vaccine. We are still waiting to hear whether we will be appointed to deliver Covid vaccines for Phase 1b, but if successful the Astra Zeneca brand is the one that would be available to Blackburn Clinic. The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation has recommended that the interval between first and second dose is 12 weeks. For further information please see https://www.tga.gov.au/media-release/tga-provisionally-approves-astrazenecas-covid-19-vaccine.
1 Mar 2021- We are excited to announce that we have been appointed to deliver COVID-19 vaccines. We don’t yet have a start date for this but we’ll announce it here as soon as we can.
