New dedicated Pfizer vaccination clinic at Penrith Panthers

18 Aug 2021

 

A new COVID-19 vaccination clinic will open at Penrith Panthers Rugby League Club on Monday 23 August.

The Penrith Vaccination Clinic will administer Pfizer vaccinations only. All vaccinations at the clinic will be by appointment only.

The much larger clinic will replace the Nepean Vaccination Clinic on Somerset St, Kingswood.

We thank Penrith Panthers Rugby League Club for their support of Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District’s vaccination rollout.

This new clinic, at a large venue with abundant parking and easy access to public transport, will give more community members the opportunity to be vaccinated sooner.

Existing appointments from Monday 23 August onwards that were originally scheduled at the Nepean Clinic will be transferred to the Penrith Clinic at Panthers. The date and time of the booking does not change.

Residents of the Penrith LGA aged 16 to 39 will receive priority appointments at the Penrith Vaccination Clinic due to suburbs within the region being listed as areas of concern.

Priority bookings for 16 to 39 year-olds can be made via https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/health-and-wellbeing/covid-19-vaccination-nsw/priority-covid-19-vaccination-booking-for-16

All other appointments for eligible recipients can be booked through the eligibility checker on the Australian Government Department of Health website: https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility

The Penrith Vaccination Clinic will open on Monday 23 August and will operate 7:30am to 9:30pm, seven days a week.

Our Caddens Vaccination Clinic continues to offer AstraZeneca vaccinations for anyone aged 18 years and over.

COVID-19 vaccinations are also available at locations across the region, including some GP clinics and pharmacies.

NSW Health is working closely with the Australian Government to implement a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccination program.
