Coffs Harbour Hospital has been named as a vaccine hub for Phase 1a rollout and the government has called for Expressions of Interest from General Practices to be a part of Phase 1b.

Northside Health has submitted an expression of interest along with some of the other practices in Coffs Harbour and we are all awaiting the decision at this point in time.

As soon as we know any further information in regards to Phase 1b we will update this page on the website and also our Facebook page.

Our receptionists will not be able to tell you any further information than what is on this page so we ask that you check this page before calling the practice.

We anticipate being able to bring you some FAQ’s very shortly.
