All people aged 18 and over will be able to get an AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination from today, Friday 10 September, in a vaccination blitz at Qudos Bank Arena Vaccination Centre.
Bookings will be able to made on-the-spot at NSW’s largest vaccination centre which has administered more than 210,000 vaccinations in one month of operation.
Western Sydney Local Health District chief executive Graeme Loy encouraged anyone not yet vaccinated to come forward to Qudos Bank Arena, where there is free parking and no lengthy queues.
“Qudos Bank Arena Vaccination Centre has demonstrated ability to vaccinate over 15,000 people a day and now even more appointments are available,” Mr Loy said.
“We have a very strong focus on the operations and flow of people, ensuring everyone is vaccinated as safely and quickly as possible. For most people the whole process has taken less than 40 minutes.”
Two doses of any COVID-19 vaccine not only helps protect people from hospitalisation and death, but also helps reduce transmission of COVID-19. Two doses of any vaccine leads to around 90 per cent overall reduction in transmission of the virus.
You must not attend your vaccination appointment if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. Please get tested and self-isolate until you receive a negative test result. You should also not attend if you are a close contact.
Bookings for AstraZeneca vaccinations at Qudos Bank Arena are encouraged but not required. Appointments will be able to be made on-the-spot at the Vaccination Centre.
