The Perth Royal Show will offer walk-in COVID vaccination appointments as part of the state’s increase vaccine program.
Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan announced a rollout of expansion plans to increase COVID-19 vaccinations – allowing more eligible Western Australians to roll up their sleeves and receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
Due to the increased supply of Pfizer WA will be receiving from the Commonwealth, new clinics will be established and increase capacity will be built into current State-run community clinics.
These improvements will mean, 10,000 more bookings a week will be added on Roll Up For WA website.
New clinic locations and increase capacity
Centrepoint Midland Shopping Centre
A new clinic will be set up at Centrepoint Midland shopping centre, from September 6, replacing the Redcliffe clinic.
The centre will be open seven days a week and is expected to provide approximately 8,000 appointments a week.
Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre
The Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre will be home to the new Perth CBD vaccination clinic from August 16 and operating weekdays, providing about 6,000 appointments a week and opportunities for CBD workers to ‘Roll Up’ while at work.
Bookings at both clinics can be made now on rollupforwa.com.au or by phoning 13 COVID.
Claremont Showgrounds and Royal Show
The Claremont Showgrounds vaccination clinic set a record with 3,500 bookings last Sunday, and it will increase its capacity from this Sunday expanding to 60 booths – allowing for delivery of up to 2,400 additional doses per day.
The State Government is partnering with the Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia to keep the Claremont clinic operational throughout the duration of the Show between September 25 to October 2.
As part of a new trial, a walk-in program at the vaccination clinic means visitors to the Perth Royal Show, who are not yet vaccinated, will be able to access the clinic.
Eligible people who want their first dose can turn up without an appointment, with thousands of spots available every day.
This means you can Roll Up For WA and then reward yourself with a showbag or a ride in Sideshow Alley.
Please note while those who require a second dose should already have a booking and are urged to keep their booking.
Kwinana Community Clinic
The clinic will increase its hours from five days to seven days a week from the middle of August.
Regional vaccination is also seeing increased capacity, with new community clinics in Busselton, which opened this week at the Youth and Community Activities Building, operating Tuesday and Fridays, offering Pfizer COVID vaccines.
There will also be a clinic in Manjimup at the Manjimup Town Hall open on Thursdays, starting July 29 and will be offering Pfizer COVID vaccines.
These new community clinics are now taking bookings through Roll Up For WA and will complement the existing 89 health clinics operating in country towns and communities.
Further clinic information is available via healthywa.wa.gov.au.
The one-millionth dose is expected to be administered this weekend – a major milestone in WA’s vaccination program.
