Campbelltown and Liverpool may be celebrating the lifting of the curfew thanks to high vaccination rates, but further south in Wollondilly they’re just happy to be getting more vaccine supplies.
More vaccine supplies are slated to arrive at GPs and pharmacies across the Shire this week.
On top of that an Aboriginal pop up Pfizer vaccination clinic will be set up at Tahmoor Sportsground on Friday afternoon.
This will follow a pop-up clinic in the neighbouring Wingecarribee Shire at Mittagong that morning.
In addition to these clinics, NSW Health has advised that GP practices across Wollondilly will all have Pfizer supplies from next week, making vaccines much more accessible for the whole community.
Mayor Khan, who has been calling for more vaccine supplies, has thanked NSW Health.
“Hopefully the increased supply of Pfizer to our GPs and the chance to attend a pop-up clinic will fast track the process for those still waiting for a local appointment,’’ he said.
“This should give our community a significant boost in the race to vaccinate, and I look forward to seeing Wollondilly reach the targets of 70 percent and 80 percent double doses soon.
“I encourage everyone who hasn’t got their jab yet to make the most of this opportunity, so we can all be ready when restrictions start to ease to get out and about again, to see our family and friends, and get our local economy back in shape.”
In other Covid-19 news, Picton Respiratary Clinic has set up Big Pfizer Sunday clinics at the Masonic Hall in Colden Street Picton (pictured above), to allow more space to cater for the 1000 plus patients being vaccinated on the day.
The first Sunday was a big success with glowing reviews from the community. Appointments can be booked online at www.pictonrespiratoryclinic.com.au.
