WBHHS Vaccine Lead Fiona Sewell said it was fantastic to be part of the state-wide effort to lift the vaccination rate.
“Our vaccination hubs and mobile outreach van will be offering anyone who walks in this weekend the Pfizer vaccine,” Ms Sewell said.
“Anyone 12 years or older can receive the Pfizer vaccine from our clinics this weekend, it’s as simple as just showing up.

Ms Sewell encouraged people to drop by the vaccination hubs even if they have some questions they want answered before being vaccinated.
“Our qualified team of clinicians at the vaccination hubs, including on duty medical officers, are able to answer questions about vaccination and are happy to talk to anyone about it,” Ms Sewell said.
“If you have those questions answered then you can choose to get vaccinated or return home to think about your decision further – the main thing is to get that expert advice now so you can make a decision.
