COVID-19 vaccine rollout information

Information for GPs, residential aged care facilities and the community.

Brisbane North PHN is supporting our general practices to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in our region.

This page contains information on GP respiratory clinics, fever and community assessment clinics and resources to help in the assessment and management of COVID-19.

Current local advice is that patients with suspected COVID-19 are referred to GP respiratory clinics, pathology collection centres, fever clinics, community assessment clinics or emergency departments that are equipped to appropriately respond.
