MLHD Vaccination Rollout

Murrumbidgee Local Health District has announced the rollout of AstraZeneca vaccinations to health service staff across the District.

Initially vaccination clinics were established at hub sites in Wagga Wagga and Griffith to begin the implementation of the vaccine. From Monday 29 March, mobile teams will be deployed to outreach clinics at smaller hospital sites to ensure healthcare workers and aged care residents can be vaccinated as close to where they live as possible.

Hospital and Health Service staff, including paramedics are anticipated to receive the vaccine over the coming weeks as part of the Priority 1A and Priority 1B rollout.

The vaccine rollout is being led by the Australian Government, with the NSW Government responsible for implementing parts of the program with a focus on priority/vulnerable populations in NSW.

Healthcare workers working in locations with a higher risk of exposure to, and transmission of COVID-19, such as emergency departments, COVID-19 testing clinics, and COVID-19 wards are among the first to receive the vaccine.
