Booster vital to fight virus

WITH more than 5,000 new Covid infections in Cumberland in the last four months, residents are being encouraged to get their Covid-19 booster vaccination.

There have been 5,069 acquired Covid-19 cases in Cumberland since April 4 and 25,587 tests.
Getting your vaccine or booster is as easy as just walking into the Granville Centre Vaccination Clinic on Fridays, 11am-5pm and Saturdays and Sundays, 9am-3pm.
WSLHD chief executive Graeme Loy says residents have done a phenomenal job in fighting this virus by coming forward for their vaccination and now everyone is being encouraged to consider getting their booster dose for added protection.
The Granville clinic has delivered more than 20,000 vaccinations since it was established on November 8, 2021.
Anyone 16 years and over who received their second dose at least three months ago, is eligible to book now for a booster vaccination and an additional winter booster dose is also available four months after the booster dose for those most at risk.
GPs and pharmacists will continue to provide the majority of the vaccinations to the broader community.
Auburn Hospital is also offering an in-reach service on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9am–11am, for first, second and booster doses to all eligible people aged 12 and over, as well as third doses for immunocompromised people.
