A new pop-up COVID-19 vaccination hub targeting vulnerable members of the community will begin operating at Club Rivers at Riverwood from today.
The clinic is one of several being operated by South Eastern Sydney Local Health District to ensure vulnerable members of the community have easy access to the jab.
The walk-in clinic will operate at Club Rivers, 32 Littleton Street, Riverwood, from 10am to 4pm on September 20 to 24. It is open to anyone aged 18 and over and will offer Pfizer jabs.
It will return on October 18 to 22 for second doses.
A clinic will also operate this week at Matthews Anglican Church, Botany.
Another pop-up clinic will run at Rockdale Town Hall, 448 Princes Highway, Rockdale, from 10am-4pm, September 27-October 1. It will be open to anyone aged 18 and over and will offer AstraZeneca and Pfizer jabs.
No appointment is necessary at the clinics.
SESLHD chief executive Tobi Wilson told the Leader last week the new pop-up clinics would operate for one week at a time,
"What we are planning on doing is having pop-up clinics that go into some of these areas for a week, and target everyone in the community who is vulnerable, then go back in three weeks and do it all again," Mr Wilson said.
"That way they do not have to worry about how they can get there and having to make an appointment. They can just walk across and get it."
