The doctors, nurses and staff at Mansfield Medical Clinic recommend all patients and the wider community are vaccinated against Covid-19.
Our doctors cannot issue a Covid-19 Vaccine Exemption to patients who do not meet the strict criteria for exemption.
The criteria for exemption are set by the government and are for severe allergies to ingredients, documented allergy to past doses of vaccine or a small number of other specified conditions. The certificate of exemption is a legal document certifying you meet the criteria.
If you don’t have any of the medical issues that would make you exempt, but you are hesitant to have the vaccine, you should talk through your concerns with your doctor.
