As Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination rollout continues more and more Aussies are lining up to get their jabs.
The majority of Australian’s in full time employment work from Monday to Friday, so it makes sense that some of the population would look to get their vaccination jabs on weekends or public holidays.
The official word from NSW Health is that vaccination clinics are only open from Monday to Friday.
As stated on the NSW Health Website – NSW Health’s vaccination clinics generally operate Monday to Friday. Therefore, there may be limited or no vaccines administered on weekend days and public holidays due to planned closures. (Source: health.nsw.gov.au)
As each locally acquired case of COVID-19 occurs and the threat of lockdowns or restrictions increases, it seems that the a higher number of the general public are willing to get their vaccinations sooner rather than later. It would be beneficial to the members of the NSW community if vaccination clinics had more flexibility by opening on weekends and public holidays to allow all members an opportunity to get their vaccinations.
Note that this information is current at the time this article was created (23 June, 2021). Due to the dynamic nature of the COVID rollout it is advised to continue checking the NSW Health website for any updates.
