“While we are waiting for our community vaccination clinic to be ready, we will use temporary clinic settings, starting with our Day Centre,” Mrs Taylor said.
“The Day Centre is available during the lockdown so starting on Tuesday, we will be vaccinating community members who have booked in for testing and can prove their eligibility,” she said.
“There is strict eligibility criteria and evidence of your eligibility may be needed before you can be vaccinated.
“There are limited spots available for AstraZeneca vaccinations on Tuesday morning and Pfizer vaccinations on Tuesday afternoon and Friday next week.
“Pfizer is only available for eligible people under 50 years of age.”
Mrs Taylor said the establishment of a fixed community vaccination clinic was still a few weeks away.
“In the meantime we will provide as many opportunities for community vaccinations as possible with our limited resources,” she said.
Important to note: Details of eligibility for vaccinations and the necessary evidence to be provided is available on the COVID of the WHCG website – www.whcg.org.au – or follow the links from the WHCG Facebook page.
"Once you establish your eligibility, you can phone for your vaccination appointment by calling 5362 3423 during 9am-4.30pm on weekdays only. Please be aware there is a high demand and you may have to try multiple times to get through."
"Please note also that due to demand, you may miss out on being able to book for next week but there will be further opportunities in the following weeks," Mrs Taylor said.
