The Federal Government is deploying roving COVID-19 vaccination clinics to 94 residential aged care facilities located in the seven Local Government Areas (LGA’s) declared as COVID-19 hotspots:
- Canada Bay
- City of Sydney
- Inner West
The roving clinics will offer a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to any residents or workers yet to receive a vaccine.
All 94 residential aged care facilities have received their first and second dose clinics through the Government’s COVID-19 vaccine roll out in aged care.
The local Primary Health Network will contact residential aged care facilities in the seven local government areas in Sydney to schedule the roving clinics.
Roving clinics are also offering vaccine to residents and workers yet to be vaccinated at 145 residential aged care facilities in Tier 1 locations, as defined by Victorian health authorities.
To date, 136 of the facilities have received the roving clinics.
The Government said it is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in both Victoria and New South Wales and will extend the roving clinics program as needed.
