Western Sydney residents are encouraged to book their COVID-19 booster vaccination today through the hundreds of local providers as Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) changes hours at its two walk-in vaccination clinics.
Blacktown Hospital Vaccination Clinic is now open 10am-6pm Monday to Friday and 8am-4pm Saturday and Sunday.
This clinic has provided more than 107,000 vaccinations since opening its doors on 30 March 2021, and from this Friday (May 6) will also offer the Moderna vaccine in addition to Pfizer and AstraZeneca.
Blacktown Hospital continues to provide low-sensory appointments for people aged 5+ with low-moderate intellectual disability, sensory disturbances, behavioural disorders or chronic mental health conditions. Appointments are available between 10am-12pm each Friday – email WSLHD-COVIDVaccinationBooking@health.nsw.gov.au to enquire and book.
The Granville Centre Vaccination Clinic is now open 11am-5pm on Friday and 9am-3pm Saturday and Sunday for walk-ins only, and closed Monday to Thursday.
This clinic has delivered more than 20,000 vaccinations since it was established on 8 November 2021.
Patients, outpatients and visitors aged 5+ at Westmead, Blacktown, Mount Druitt, Auburn and Cumberland hospitals still have access to vaccination via mobile teams based at each facility – read more about this service here.
GPs and pharmacists will continue to provide the majority of COVID-19 vaccinations to the broader community throughout western Sydney.
Anyone aged 16+ who received their second dose at least three months ago is eligible to book now for a booster vaccination.
An additional winter booster dose is also available four months after the booster dose for those most at risk, namely if you are:
- aged 65 years or over
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over
- a resident of an aged care or disability care facility
- aged 16 years and over and severely immunocompromised. For people in this group, the winter vaccine dose will be a fifth COVID-19 vaccine dose (three primary doses, first booster and winter booster).
