COVID-19 Vaccination

​Western NSW Loca​l Health District provides support for the Federal Government’s vaccination program being rolled out through General Practitioners, with the provision of COVID-19 vaccination services to our communities. For other vaccination providers, use the online clinic finder.

In Australia COVID-19 vaccinations are free and we encourage all eligible people in our District to have both doses of a vaccine as soon as possible.​

We will aim to vaccinate priority groups first, including aged care workers, disability workers, Aboriginal people and people over 16 with an underlying medical condition or disability.​

Decisions about which communities we visit, and the order of those visits, are made following consideration of factors such as:

  • Which communities have higher populations of vulnerable and high priority groups, 

  • Locations where vaccination availability is lowest and potentially not available through the other providers, 

  • Latest vaccination rate data for various communities​, and 

  • Logistics such as the supply and transport of vaccine. 

Other providers may also be offering COVID-19 near you.  Visit the Vaccine clinic finder or call the NSW Vaccination number on 1800 571 155 to register for appointments with these other services.
