Jab now so ready as restrictions lift

YOUNGER residents who have lined up for hours in the thousands to get a vaccine have been applauded by State MP for Auburn, Lynda Voltz.

She said the residents of Western Sydney, particularly residents of the Auburn electorate, had done a tremendous job, turning out to get their vaccines in droves.
“In particular I want to give a big shout out to our younger residents, most of whom have received an Astra Zeneca shot,” she said.
“As is always the case in difficult times in this country, it is our young people that answer the call.”
She is urging everyone to get a vaccine as soon as possible with a partial lifting of restrictions when vaccination rates hit 70 per cent in early October.
“It is becoming clear that the NSW Government intends to ease restrictions and has indicated those who have been vaccinated will be among the first to have restrictions lifted,” she said.
“It is important to remember that vaccination reduces the viral load significantly in the community, helping keep you, your family and your community safe.
“If you haven’t yet received a vaccine, I urge you to book in now to make sure you are ready for when restrictions ease.”
Local GPs and pharmacies have plenty of Astra Zeneca shots available as does the mass vaccination hub at Sydney Olympic Park. There are also priority Pfizer vaccination bookings available for anyone aged 16-59 at the Qudos Bank Arena Hub and more Pfizer bookings becoming available to everyone at other hubs; keep checking the system for new appointments.
