Special Vaccination Clinic for Pregnant Women - Sunday 19th September at Raymond Terrance Respiratory Clinic By Blackbutt Team Posted September 6, 2021 In Health Information

Raymond Terrace Respiratory Clinic is running a Pregnancy only specialty Vaccination clinic for the Pfizer vaccine on Sunday September 19th.
This clinic is only available for women who are currently pregnant.

Please register your interest by completing the form below:

On the day, proof will be required, such as antenatal record, or recent dated scan images. There will be strictly only 500 slots available, as the clinic can only give out what they actually have! If you have filled in the form, please be patient over the next few days until you receive a text to confirm your booking – its actually a very labour intensive process to run these targeted clinics because the online booking system provided to us does not allow priority. If a slot is open online, any eligible person can book it.

Policy on masks and mask exemptionsBy Blackbutt Team Posted August 6, 2021 In Health Information


It is the policy of this practice that everybody wears a mask while on the premises. This helps us to comply with strict workplace health and safety obligations and also helps us to provide safe care to all.

If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask, please advise us before you come to the practice. This will enable us to plan your care in the way that is safest for all.

This means we may offer you:

  • Telehealth appointment;


  • An appointment at a time and place that minimises contact with others (for example, we may ask you to wait in your car without waiting in waiting room; or we may see you in a room in the pharmacy).

Wearing masks help decrease the spread of infectious diseases, like COVID-19.

There are very limited circumstances where an exemption is appropriate and rarely will our doctors be able to provide you with one.

If you require evidence that you have a condition that makes wearing a mask unsuitable, you can also seek assistance from a registered NDIS provider or sign a statutory declaration, which does not require input from a doctor.

We are happy to provide a copy of your health summary if you need to verify your health conditions.

Important COVID Vaccine Update RE: Astra Zeneca Vaccine for people under 50yrsBy Blackbutt Team Posted April 12, 2021 in News and Events
In line with the policy of the Commonwealth Government, we are not offering the Astra Zeneca vaccine to those under the age of 50 years.
Individuals under 50 years who were already booked in for vaccination have been cancelled.
We will be offering for only those 50 years and over to book in for vaccination for the Astra Zeneca vaccine.
We do not have any other vaccine apart from the Astra Zeneca vaccine, and we have not heard anything about the availability of an alternate vaccine for those under 50. We will advise our patients what is recommended for those under 50 years, eligible in 1b, when we are advised.
Those who have already had their initial Astra Zeneca vaccine, and are under 50 years of age, will be recalled to have their second Astra Zeneca vaccine, 12 weeks or so after the initial dose. This is in line with Commonwealth Governments policy, and has a good safety profile.
We will let our patients know more information as soon as we have it to share.
