Given our current allocations of Pfizer Vaccines we are focusing on our local communities. We are accepting appointments for people within 50kms of our vaccine clinic in Nowra. If you are in a NSW Government LGA of concern we are unable to provide you and our patients a safe environment for vaccination. We encourage you to book within your local LGA.
- Please make sure you have filled out your registration and consent forms at time of making your appointment, otherwise we will not be able to provide you with a vaccination.
- Be on time, we are vaccinating 10 people every 15 minutes, if you are late we may not be able to provide you with a vaccine.
- Have you identification and Medicare cards easily accessible.
- Wear loose fitting clothing for easy access to the upper part of your non-dominate hand.
