New ‘walk-in’ vaccination clinics coming to Southern NSW
A series of ‘walk-in’ vaccination clinics will be held in Queanbeyan, Goulburn, Batemans Bay and Cooma over the next month in an effort to boost vaccination rates across Southern NSW.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the Southern NSW Local Health District is partnering with local GPs and pharmacists to ensure anyone in the region who wants to be vaccinated, can be vaccinated.
“Thank you to everyone who has come forward already to receive their vaccine. The more jabs we can get in arms, the quicker our region can return to a level of normality,” Mr Barilaro said.
“These ‘walk-in’ vaccination clinics make the process so easy. All you have to do is turn up on the day, without a booking, to receive your free AstraZeneca vaccine.
“Every year when we get our flu shot we never question the brand name. Now is not the time to get caught up in brand wars. I’m encouraging everyone to roll up their sleeves and get the jab in order to protect yourself, your family and our community.”
The following clinics will be open from 9am to 4pm for anyone aged 18 years or older to receive their free AstraZeneca vaccine;
- Queanbeyan, Morriset House, Morriset St, Queanbeyan.
Thursday 2, Friday 3, Saturday 4 September
- Goulburn, Old RTA building, Bourke St, Goulburn.
Sunday 5, Monday 6, Tuesday 7 September
- Batemans Bay, Batemans Bay Soldiers Club, 6 Beach Rd, Batemans Bay.
Thursday 9, Friday 10, Saturday 11 September
- Cooma, Multi Function Centre, entry via Cromwell St, Cooma.
Sunday 12, Monday 13, Tuesday 14 September
All people aged 18 and above are eligible for the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Local MLC Bronnie Taylor said staff at the ‘walk-in’ clinics will be able to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.
“As a nurse I cannot stress how important it is that we get our vaccination rates up – so that we can protect one another and return to a life free of lockdowns,” Mrs Taylor said.
“The best thing that you can do is to roll up our sleeves and get vaccinated. AstraZeneca is safe, effective and available in our community. Now is the perfect time to get your jab.”
