BOOST TO COAST VACCINE ROLL OUT

More Coast GPs on board with Pfizer
THE COVID-19 vaccine rollout is set to be bolstered on the Central Coast, with additional COVID-19 vaccines headed to the region and more GPs coming on board with Pfizer this month.
 
Federal Liberal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks MP said Central Coast residents should see more COVID-19 vaccine bookings available, with an additional ­­40 GPs joining the Pfizer rollout in September.
 
“In addition to the 15 GPs already administering Pfizer, over 40 GPs in the region will also start administering both the Pfizer and Vaxzevria (previously known as AstraZeneca) CO­­VID-19 vaccines,” Ms Wicks said.
 
“This will provide more points of presence for Central Coast residents to get a COVID-19 vaccine, and I encourage everyone looking to receive their vaccine to call your local GP or community pharmacy and book.
 
“There is ample supply of Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), with many in our community getting a booking within days.
 
“To date, we’ve administered over 19 million COVID-19 vaccines across Australia, including 6.7 million in New South Wales and 65 per cent of Central Coast residents have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination. I want to thank all of you for coming forward and receiving a vaccine.
 
“Over the next few months, we expect additional COVID-19 vaccines to be available for Central Coast residents, including Moderna, which is expected to arrive this month.”
 
There are currently 110 vaccination providers in the Central Coast LGA. This includes over 70 general practices, 44 pharmacies, one Commonwealth Vaccination Clinic and one Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation.
 
All Australians aged 16 and over are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, and from 13 September, all children aged 12-15 will be eligible to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
