Albany Health Campus is hosting a pop-up vaccination clinic at the old Bunnings Warehouse site, sausage sizzle and all on October 8 and 9. .
This is to allow more people to be vaccinated because the vaccine clinic at Albany Health Campus’ population health building is only equipped to vaccinate two people at a time.
Vaccine appointments family friendly
WA Country Health issued a statement saying the pop-up clinic aimed to make the vaccination process easier for families.
The clinic will be open to people aged 12 years and over and group bookings will be available though the Vaccinate WA website.
The two-day clinic will also host family activities, a firetruck and of course, an iconic Bunnings sausage sizzle.
Residents asked to “play their part” in keeping region safe
WACHS vaccination program lead Margaret Abernethy said COVID-19 vaccines were an important step on the path out of this pandemic.
“We’re making it as easy as possible for residents in the Great Southern to roll up to receive their COVID-19 vaccination,” she said.
“The vaccines are safe, and they’re effective. Two doses of the Pfizer vaccine are highly effective in protecting people from becoming seriously ill with COVID-19, including new variants like the Delta strain.
“We’re asking the residents of Albany to play their part in keeping the region safe, healthy and vibrant.”
People attending the walk-in clinic on October 8 and 9 are asked to bring their Medicare card with them.
According to emails sent out by Vaccinate WA to people with upcoming COVID-19 vaccine appointments at the health campus, their appointment locations have also been moved to the old Bunnings site.
