COVID-19 Updates

Bond Medical clinic is currently offering COVID-19 vaccinations Pfizer Comirnaty and Novavax (Nuvaxovid) for both primary course and booster vaccinations.

Current TGA guidelines recommend a booster dose a minimum of 3 months post completion of primary course (doses 1 & 2). A 2nd booster dose is not approved at this time.

To discuss your eligibility or to book a vaccine appointment call clinic reception on (07) 5595 4043.

Bond Medical Clinic is now offering the option for Rapid Antigen COVID-19 swabs on campus. These swabs are self-administered. This test can be used to screen yourself if you are presenting with COVID-19 symptoms such as: runny nose, cough, sore throat, fatigue etc.

Due to the nature of the test, we are not accepting walk-ins.

  1. All appointments must be booked via phone ahead of time.
  2. When attending the clinic for testing, please call clinic reception from outside to notify of your arrival.
  3. The Nurse will then attend you outside to decrease risk of transmittable illness to staff and other patients.

Dr. Peter Karsas operates from the Medical Clinic and is available by appointment.
