Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou joins NSW Premier and Health Minister at opening of new vax clinic

·

A new vaccination centre opened in Western Sydney on Sunday as New South Wales turns its attention to booster shots.

The opening of the Granville Centre, in partnership with Cumberland City Council, comes as the Qudos Bank Arena vaccination hub closes after administering more than 360,000 COVID-19 jabs.

People aged 18 years and over will now be eligible for a Pfizer booster shot six months after receiving their second dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.

In attendance at the opening of the Granville Centre was Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet, and NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard.

Cr Christou said the centre would benefit his community and that he was excited to do whatever necessary to beat the pandemic.

“Donated by Council free of charge I would like to thank Cumberland City Council staff for their hard work,” Cr Christou said on Twitter.

The centre has the capacity to administer 1,000 booster shots per day and a surge capacity up to 2,000.

Premier Perrottet said the journey out of the pandemic was not over and the clinic would play an important role over the next 12 months.
