Five major vaccination hubs and 99 satellite sites will open progressively across NSW starting from Monday, 15 March, as the COVID-19 vaccination rollout stretches across the State.
These vaccination hubs and satellite sites will initially focus on frontline healthcare and border workers, and will eventually be followed by a wider rollout of the vaccine to the general public through the GP network.
The five major hubs and their linked satellite sites will open progressively from 15 March through to April and will be located at:
- Newcastle Hospital
- Wollongong Hospital
- Wagga Wagga Base Hospital
- Coffs Harbour Hospital
- Dubbo Hospital
The vaccine will be dispatched from the hubs to the satellite sites.
Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said it has been great to see the enormous enthusiasm from those receiving and giving the jabs.
“Our health system has kept us safe and NSW is on track to achieve its goal of more than 35,000 vaccinations with thousands of frontline workers already receiving their first doses,” Mr Provest said.
“The NSW Nationals are building a safer, stronger regional NSW and I’m delighted that Tweed residents will be able to access the vaccine at Tweed, and I’ll be keeping the community informed with exact times etc as they become available.”
Deputy Premier John Barilaro said it’s fantastic the rollout of the vaccine will be expanded into regional NSW, now including major hubs in Coffs Harbour, Dubbo and Wagga Wagga.
“Regional NSW has endured a myriad of impacts from COVID-19 and with the vaccine now on its way, we will have the confidence and assurance we need to live fully and remain open for business,” Mr Barilaro said.
“An important aspect of the continued rollout is ensuring everyone at risk of COVID-19 has access to vaccination as close to their homes as possible.”
