The Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) will begin COVID-19 vaccination of far
south coast health workers, from Batemans Bay to Eden, at South East Regional Hospital
(SERH), Bega today. The first busload of health workers from the Eurobodalla made their way down to Bega today to be vaccinated.
Southern NSW Local Health District say they are very pleased the NSW Government has also announced Wollongong as a COVID-19 vaccination hub from 15 March 2021, where staff from Bombala, Braidwood, Cooma, Delegate and Goulburn will be vaccinated.
Chief Executive Margaret Bennett says that this is a momentous occasion and an important
turning point for a region that has faced significant challenges in recent years following
drought, bushfires and floods. "The first staff to receive COVID-19 vaccinations will be those at highest risk of exposure to
COVID-19 positive patients. This group includes workers in emergency departments, aged
care and COVID-19 testing clinics.
“We are so pleased that our Priority 1a health workers will be among the first Australians to
receive a COVID-19 vaccination,” Ms Bennett said.
“Our teams have worked tirelessly managing our local COVID-19 response. We are
encouraged and relieved to know those frontline staff will all be immunised in coming weeks.”
