NSW is looking to administer 60,000 COVID-19 vaccination doses a week with 30,000 of those jabs to happen at a new mass vaccination hub in Homebush.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced the mass vaccination hub will be located at a new commercial building in Homebush in addition to another 100 vaccination clinics across the state to be run by NSW Health.
This means NSW will be capable of administering 60,000 COVID-19 vaccination doses a week, with 30,000 of these doses set to take place at Homebush.
The mass COVID-19 vaccination hub at Homebush will be operated by the Sydney Local Health District with more details, including when it is expected to open, to come.
Westmead Hospital vaccination hub and Blacktown Hospital vaccination clinic
Westmead Hospital and Blacktown Hospital are only providing the vaccine to staff and frontline workers and are not open to the general public.
COVID-19 vaccinations will become available in phases. This means groups of people will receive the vaccination at different times.
