Vaccination clinics galore this weekend

Vaccination clinics
Vaccination clinics are set to ‘pop up’ over three areas in the Bundaberg Region this weekend.

Vaccination clinics continue to ‘pop up’ around the Bundaberg Region with three locations to choose from this weekend.

The clinics are part of an ongoing push to provide the community with the opportunity to get vaccinated and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service (WBHHS) vaccine lead Fiona Sewell asked all residents and visitors who had not yet been vaccinated to come forward and roll up their sleeve.

“We’re continuing to branch out to as many places as possible to offer convenient access to the vaccine,” Ms Sewell.

“As part of a statewide campaign, we’re excited to be returning to Bunnings Warehouse on Saturday (16 October) in Bundaberg, Maryborough and Hervey Bay, between 8am and 3pm.

“We’re hoping to see tradies, renovators, DIY regulars, plant lovers and casual shoppers, or those simply there to grab a sausage and support their local charity.

“On Sunday (17 October), our WBHHS pop-up vaccination teams will also be heading to the picturesque Elliott Heads Beach and Brendan Hansen Park at Granville.

“We’re doing everything we can to make it as easy as possible to get vaccinated by bringing the vaccine to where you live, work, shop and play.”

Ms Sewell said vaccination remained the best way to protect ourselves and our loved ones against the impacts of COVID-19, including serious illness or death from the virus.

“Our local community has done so well – but we need to keep up the good work and protect our loved ones along with our freedoms,” she said.

“Now that everyone from the age of 12 is eligible, we want to see generations of families walking into our hubs and getting vaccinated.

“COVID-19 vaccine is our best line of defence in getting out of this pandemic and it is also the best way you can protect yourself, your family, your colleagues, and your community.

“We have the supply, so please take this opportunity to roll up your sleeves and be vaccinated.”

Ms Sewell encouraged those who were hesitant to speak with a health professional.

“If you choose not to roll up your sleeve, at least arm yourself with the medical facts,” she said.

“There is a lot of misinformation out there, particularly on social media – go see your trusted doctor and get all the information you want or need.

“Current evidence shows that people who have received a vaccine have a much lower chance of developing more serious symptoms from COVID-19, compared to those who did not get the vaccine.”
