Keep up to date with im­mu­ni­sa­tions

Southern Telegraph - - NEWS -

Kwinana Gen­eral Prac­tice is a fam­ily- run prac­tice with a team of staff who are am­bi­tious about cre­at­ing a healthy com­mu­nity.

This year the prac­tice is striv­ing to help the com­mu­nity reach the high­est level of im­mu­nity against in­fec­tious dis­eases, by en­cour­ag­ing pa­tients to keep up to date with their im­mu­ni­sa­tions.

The prac­tice is of­fer­ing catch- up meningo­coc­cal ACWY vac­ci­na­tions to pro­tect pa­tients against ex­tra strains.

Free vac­ci­na­tions are avail­able for chil­dren aged one and be­low five years old, and for youths aged 14 and be­low 20 years old.

As Aus­tralia has one of the high­est rates of skin can­cer in the world, Kwinana GP also pro­vides free skin scan­ning.

The team of ex­pe­ri­enced doc­tors are well trained to re­move any sus­pi­cious skin le­sion.

They also en­cour­age pre­ven­ta­tive health checks.

Lo­cated next to Pasta Cup and KFC on Chisham Av­enue in Kwinana Town Cen­tre, Kwinana GP is open Mon­day to Fri­day from 8am to 5.30pm, and from 8am to 1pm on Satur­days.

To book an ap­point­ment, call 9439 6188 or book on­line via health en­gine.
