The Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) has announced that a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic is now open at Lismore Square shopping centre.

Open from 7.30am until 4pm Monday to Friday, the clinic, which opened today, will see members of the public aged 50 and over, access the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination through the clinic.

NNSWLHD Chief Executive, Wayne Jones, said the clinic is an added measure to support the vaccination rollout currently underway for those who cannot access the vaccine through their usual General Practitioner. ‘By providing this vaccination clinic at such a central and accessible location, we’re making it even easier for people in the community to receive their vaccination.

Pandemic far from over

‘We know that this pandemic is far from over, and vaccination is a key part of
protecting our community from the most severe effects of COVID-19. I encourage everyone who is eligible to get a vaccination, to do so as soon as possible.’

Anyone in Northern NSW aged 50 and over can book to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine through GPs or other participating clinics, by visiting covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility.

People aged 40-49 can register their interest to receive the Pfizer vaccine at
https://www.nsw.gov.au. In Northern NSW the Pfizer vaccine will be available through clinics at The Tweed Hospital, Lismore Base Hospital and Grafton Base Hospital.

The Lismore Square COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic is located at Shop 13, next
to Kmart at Lismore Square.

Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 1800 438 829 (1800 GETVAX).
