Influenza Vaccinations Available - Message from Dr San Clarke

Lord Howe Island Family Practice


Friday 3rd April 2020

Dear Lord Howe Islanders,

I hope this finds you all well and enjoying this sensational weather – hard to believe we’re in a pandemic, and sometimes tough to remember that there are still wonderful things to appreciate all around us.

Exciting news – influenza vaccinations have arrived!

Those that wish to be vaccinated (well done, you!), please phone up to be scheduled for your jab. If you are in quarantine you will need to wait until that has passed before coming in to the clinic.

Most of you know from my earlier communication that we needed to test a resident for COVID-19 at the start of this week. With their permission, I am able to let you know that it came back all clear, which is great news.

So… where to now? Well, we should celebrate that our home remains free from COVID at this stage, and continue to follow the recommendations that are keeping us safe – wash those hands, keep your distance in public, get your flu’ jabs, and spend as much time as you can at home with your loved ones (hugging them!)… most importantly, remember that there is still beauty everywhere.

Have a great weekend,
