COVID-19 Updates

Monday 2 August

Brisbane commenced a lockdown on Saturday 4pm which has been extended until Sunday 8th August at 4pm. Inform Podiatry has made the decision to close until next week to help reduce the movement of people and the potential for transmission of the COVID-19 Delta virus. We will reopen on Monday 9th August and review this decision if the lockdown is extended.

Friday 20 July

I had my second AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine with minimal side effects. If you are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, I would strongly encourage you to have it. You will be helping yourself, your close and casual contacts, vulnerable community members and reducing lockdowns.

Inform Podiatry implemented the following changes in 2020 to help protect anyone attending the clinic from COVID-19 transmission:

Friday 7 May

I had my first AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine with minimal side effects. If you are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, I would strongly encourage you to have it. You will be helping yourself, your close and casual contacts and vulnerable community members by

  1. reducing your risk of hospitalisation or death by over 90% after 2nd dose of either AstraZeneca or Pfizer

  2. 74% (AstraZeneca) to 94% (Pfizer) protection against symptoms after 2nd dose

  3. 40% to 50% reduction in your ability to spread the virus after first dose of either AstraZeneca or Pfizer
