Walk in, no need to book


A walk-in Pfizer clinic will be hosted in Deniliquin next week in an effort to help drive up COVID-19 vaccinatio­n rates.

The clinic will be hosted at Deniliquin Hospital at 411 Charlotte St, Deniliquin each day.

No bookings are needed, but you will need to bring photo ID, a face mask and your Medicare card, if you have one.

Pfizer will be available to anyone over the age of 12.

Children 12 to 15 must be accompanie­d by a legal guardian or parent to receive a vaccine.

With Edward River’s vaccinatio­n rates so low, and active cases in the community, Murrumbidg­ee Local Health District said everyone aged 12 years and older is strongly encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

‘‘By getting vaccinated, you’re helping to stop the spread of infection — protecting yourself, your loved ones, and your community,’’ a spokespers­on said.

‘‘The Murrumbidg­ee Local Health District is currently welcoming walk in appointmen­ts at Deniliquin Hospital Monday to Saturday.

‘‘Alternativ­ely bookings can be made by following the link, https:/ / id=vm_registrati­on.

Times for next week’s free vaccine clinic are as follows:

Monday, October 11 - 12.30pm to 4pm.

Tuesday, October 12 – 9am to 4pm. Wednesday, October 13 – 9am to 4pm.

Thursday, October 14 – 9am to 4pm. Friday, October 15 – 9am to noon.
