Active Health has large stock of the Astra Zeneca vaccine and is able to vaccinate all people in Phase 1B, people aged over 40 or people with an underlying health condition. Our vaccination clinics are currently running on a Monday and Tuesday and you can book via Hotdoc or by calling reception.

Active Health Portland would like all of our patients and team members to stay safe during this pandemic.

With that in mind when you need to speak with your GP or allied health provider there are some important changes to way we are currently working.

We are still offering phone and/or video appointments to patients who have been seen face to face in the last 12 months.

While we are doing mostly face to face appointments at the current time this can change depending on restrictions at the time. If you aren’t sure if your appointment is face to face or over the phone please call reception.

We are still screening all patients upon entry so if you have any cold or flu like symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose etc.) or have had a COVID test and are awaiting your result please call reception for instructions regarding your appointment.
