FROM Monday, August 9 the Landsborough Chemist and Mooloolah Pharmacy will be joining other local chemists, Star Discount Chemist in Maleny and Terry White Chemist at Glass House Mountains in offering COVID-19 vaccinations, with Amcal at Beerwah preparing to offer the service once their supplies arrive.
Ruth Zerner from Mooloolah Valley Guardian Pharmacy said she was excited to now be offering residents the opportunity to be vaccinated locally against COVID-19.
“We are happy to take bookings online via our Guardian pharmacy site, by phone or in person,” Ruth said.
“If anyone in the community wants to know more about the vaccine or discuss their options, we are always happy to have a chat and assist.”
Sean Fitzpatrick from Landsborough Chemist said the process to get vaccinated was easy and straightforward.
You can book online via the Australian Government’s COVID-19 Vaccination website, or directly via the pharmacies’ websites.
“Alternatively, you can phone the pharmacies directly to make a booking or drop by to chat to staff if you wish to find out more and make a booking in person,” Mr Fitzpatrick said.
“At Landsborough Chemist bookings are essential and we ask that people allow at least one day, 24 hours between making the booking and arriving for their first dose, to ensure we have completed all the paperwork and have no delays in the pharmacy.
“It is also important to remember that there will be a 12-week gap between the first and second dose of the vaccine.”
