The former Belmont Bunnings has been chosen as the site for the Hunter’s mass vaccination hub.

Work has begun on transforming the Pacific Highway warehouse, which is due to open in mid July.

The centre is expected to administer up to 20,000 COVID-19 vaccines per week.

The centre will employ up to 100 nurses, 25 pharmacists or pharmacy technicians and around 200 other support staff.

The former Bunnings store at 393 Pacific Highway will become the Hunter’s Mass Vaccination Centre
