Are you interested in a Q Fever Vaccination?

Q Fever is an infection that may be contracted by humans and is carried by sheep, cattle, goats and some wild animals. Therefore shearers, sheep-shearing industry workers, livestock and dairy farmers, abattoir workers and livestock carriers are at risk of contracting Q Fever.

The Hamilton Medical Group will be conducting a Q Fever Session in August.  

Patients are required to attend two clinics, 7 days apart to complete the process.  There is a fee of $230.00 inc GST) for each patient, (payable on the first night).  This fee covers the cost of the 2 consultations, skin test, pathology test and vaccine. This fee is not claimable from Medicare, but is able to be claimed as a tax deduction.

Patients are required to phone the clinic to put their name down on a list and paperwork will be sent out to patients.  This will need to be completed by each patient prior to the Q Fever session. The sessions will be capped at 30 patients, however if the first session fills we shall run another clinic.

For more information please contact The Hamilton Medical Group and speak with our Front Reception Staff on (03)  55722422.
