COVID-19 information and clinic changes
Updated Wednesday, 18 May 2022
We are closely monitoring and proactively responding to the developments in Australia associated with COVID-19, in conjunction with both the Australian Government and local public health units.
When you visit a Genea clinic or day surgery, your health, safety and wellbeing is our number one priority. We are committed to providing you with high quality, effective treatment in a safe, caring and comfortable environment. You may notice some changes in our reception areas, such as signage referring to our interactions with you, as well as hand sanitiser that we request you use upon entry.
We understand that this remains a challenging situation and some COVID-19 restrictions may be upsetting for you, but we thank you for your support. Our highly-experienced Fertility Counsellors are on hand to support you. You can contact them directly through Reception or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further information and advice
Information on the COVID-19 Vaccine
We understand that many of our patients have concerns about the safety of COVID-19 vaccinations when trying to conceive. The Royal Aust & NZ College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists RANZCOG has issued a statement regarding this matter. According to RANZCOG, there is no evidence that women who become pregnant after receiving the vaccine are at increased risk of congenital or birth deformities, miscarriage or maternal illness. Pregnancy need not be delayed after receiving the vaccine.
You are welcome to discuss any individual concerns about this with your fertility specialist
