Home vaccinations are now available for eligible people unable to get to a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in the Northern NSW region.
Chief Executive of Northern NSW Local Health District, Wayne Jones, congratulated the community for achieving 85 percent double dose vaccination rate and said the additional service was an important step in reaching those people who have not been able to attend a vaccination clinic.
“We want to make sure we are enabling everyone to be protected against the severe ill effects of COVID-19,” Mr Jones said.
NSW Health-accredited Nurse Immunisers will be able to administer the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccination to eligible individuals, and their carers, if they have a disability, injury, health issue or condition that makes it hard to move around or leave home.
Mr Jones urged people who had already received one dose not to forget their second dose to obtain the highest levels of protection offered by the vaccines.
“Vaccination provides high levels of protection against COVID-19, reducing your chance of hospitalisation and death by as much as 90 per cent after two doses,” he said.
“We know that to move forward with our COVID-19 response as a community, and to keep on protecting our loved ones, friends and community, vaccination will be our best defence against the serious effects of the virus.”
