The Pfizer vaccine is about to become more accessible for Central Coast residents with an additional 10 GP clinics able to administer Pfizer as of this week.
Federal Liberal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks MP said this brings the total number of GPs administering Pfizer across the Central Coast to 12.
“From this week, Australia’s Pfizer supply increases to approximately 1 million doses per week with new doses now in the country, and we expect that to benefit the Central Coast,” Ms. Wicks said.
“This is a huge milestone in the roll-out of the Pfizer vaccine when compared to an average of 300,000 to 350,000 doses per week in May and June.
“I know many in our community are eager to get vaccinated and these additional GPs should help to get more Coasties vaccinated sooner.
“I have also been advised that in response to the current outbreak in NSW, over 300 additional community pharmacies will commence onboarding across the broader Greater Sydney, Central Coast and Wollongong regions over the coming weeks.
The Government’s staged approach will continue to engage other community pharmacies across NSW considering the need to address outbreaks and ensure a geographic spread of the vaccination roll-out.
Across Australia, more than 10 million vaccine doses have now been administered.
