The Windale Community Medical Centre is hosting a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination hub this Saturday and next.

The clinic says the AstraZeneca vaccine will definitely be available, however a request for Pfizer has not been met.

Dr Melissa Collogan says setting up the vaccination hub is in response to the recent positive COVID case in the suburb as well as the low vaccination rates.

“The Windale community is a disadvantaged an a vulnerable community and we have many patients with chronic illness and socioeconomic disadvantage.

“If they were to contract COVID-19, their risk of  morbidity is high and so far we have found their ability to access a vaccination has proven to be difficult,” Dr Collogan said.

The team at the centre are urging anyone in Windale and surrounding suburbs to head along and get the jab. The clinic will run from 9am and people are asked to bring along photo ID and their Medicare card.
