10 Jun 2021
The Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District marked a significant milestone today having delivered their 10,000th COVID vaccination at the Nepean Hospital vaccination clinic.
NBMLHD Nurse Manager, Kim Maddock says it’s encouraging to see the community unite for a common cause.
“We’ve been open to the public a few weeks now and more and more people are registering and rolling up their sleeves wanting to help put a stop to the spread of this virus,” says Mrs Maddock.
Melanie Brothers, a McGrath Breast Care Nurse at the Nepean Cancer and Wellness Centre, received the 10,000th vaccine and is now fully vaccinated after receiving her second dose.
“It’s a great feeling to be protected,” says Melanie.
