Castlegate Family Practice patients have access to immunisation services thanks to our wonderfully caring medical team, who understand the importance of providing vaccination information as well as delivering them. We have open and flexible communication strategies for our patients, and are more than happy to address any concerns related to vaccinations for both children and adults with a gentle approach.
Our experienced doctors and nurses provide every immunisation a child needs, offering a lifetime of protection against potentially dangerous diseases, as well as recommended vaccinations and booster shots for adults. Did you know that most deadly diseases which decimated entire populations have now been fully eradicated through large-scale immunisation? Today, we are empowered with the knowledge and advanced technology to save millions of lives on the planet – all thanks to the ingenuity of vaccinations.
At Castlegate Family Practice, we offer routine vaccinations that are on the Australian Standard Vaccination Standard such as polio, diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, and rubella. Appointments are initially conducted with one of our doctors, who will not only do a full health check, but address any queries or concerns before one of our highly experienced practice nurses administers the vaccination.
For those who fear injections, rest assured we will be by your side every step of the way. The implications of a past needle experience go far beyond anxiety with some adults avoiding healthcare due to their fear. The medical team at Castlegate Family Practice have full understanding and compassion about the apprehension of vaccinations, but the good news is that with a few simple strategies, we can help ease your fears by creating a soothing environment. All with the touch of our most caring staff.
