actively monitoring the safety of vaccines

Latest News


Our new COVID-19 vaccine-ready version has been developed specifically to monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. 

We have received hundreds of Expressions of Interest (EOI) from practices for the COVID-19 vaccine-ready version. These EOIs have been presented to our funding body AusVaxSafety and a number of practices have been selected. 

Due to limited government funding, not all interested practices can be funded.  We are currently exploring a user-pays model for practices unable to be funded. Please complete the Contact Form if you would like to be notified of the details of this option, as they become available.

Lakeside Medical Centre is very proud to be 1 of the 300 practices Australia wide to be running SmartVax. SmartVax sends a follow up text message 3 days after a patient has received an immunisation to enquire if they had a reaction, and if so, did they need medical attention? This software gives us the ability to monitor your reactions (if any) in real time.

The SmartVax system has become an important part of our practice.

Parents appreciate the follow up and it is an important marketing tool for the practice. Our staff value the safety net it provides us. Thank you for allowing us to participate.

We love the fact that SmartVax is a very convenient/reliable way to let our patients know that they are due or eligible for the different vaccines. It has been working wonderfully and our patients have responded to the SMS reminders well.

We are really enjoying using SmartVax. It has been very helpful for informing our patients of their eligibility for vaccinations. We are getting a lot of patients making appointments in response to the texts (and we don't have to make any effort sending them).
