Important announcement regarding patients and Covid-19 vaccination requirements.

1st April 2022

At Coastal IVF we have recommended that all patients undergo Covid-19 immunisation to protect against serious short-term and long-term complications (particularly for those patients contemplating pregnancy).

Over the past 6 months, there have been significant changes in immunisation rates in Queensland – plus we are now aware of the endemic frequency and exposure rates to Covid-19 in the general community. As a result, while we maintain a strong recommendation for immunisation, I have decided that as from April 1 2022, there will not be a mandatory requirement for Covid-19 immunisation to attend and undergo treatment at CIVF.

Patients should be mindful that attendance at some hospitals still requires positive immunisation status. If you are symptomatic, please do not attend the clinic until you undergo Covid-19 screening to minimise any risks to other patients.

We thank all patients for their understanding through the period of the pandemic.


Kind regards,

Dr Paul A Stokes
