Eligible authorised workers in the Georges River Local Government Area have been given prioritised access to vaccination appointments between August 16 and 22.
Workers must fall into the following authorised categories:
Health care, aged care and disability care
Freight and transport (including bus drivers)
Food production, processing and retail
Primary, secondary and early childhood school staff
Eligible workers will receive a unique link to book their vaccine appointment and will be required to bring photo ID as well as proof of their place of work to receive their vaccination.
Oatley MP Mark Coure, welcomed the initiative as a means of safeguarding the health and wellbeing of workers in key frontline industries.
"This program will ensure that our most vulnerable authorised workers who need to leave home to work are vaccinated to help protect themselves and our community," Mr Coure said.
NSW Health has established a number of priority clinics where eligible authorised workers can get vaccinated as part of this campaign. Please note that both doses of the vaccine must be booked at the same time and with the same clinic.
For eligible workers aged between 16 and 39, local providers include:
St George Vaccination Clinic, St George Hospital
South Western Sydney Vaccination Centre, Macquarie Fields
NSW Health Vaccination Centre, Sydney Olympic Park
For eligible workers aged 40 and over, local providers include:
Hurstville Vaccination Centre (walk-in)
Rockdale Vaccination Centre (walk-in)
NSW Health Vaccination Centre, Sydney Olympic Park.
In addition to this, around 530,000 Pfizer doses from the Commonwealth Government will be prioritised to the 12 Greater Sydney LGAs of concern. This will give those aged 16 to 39 years in these LGAs the opportunity to be vaccinated.
