Darling Downs Health will be providing second doses of the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine at a follow-up super clinic this coming weekend.
Annette Scott, Executive Lead for the Darling Downs Health Emergency Operations Centre, said anyone who received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on the weekend of 5-6 June should present to the Baillie Henderson Hospital vaccination clinic this weekend.
“I’d like to thank our local community for the great response to our first weekend super clinic on 5-6 June,” Ms Scott said.
“All people who had their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Saturday 5 June and Sunday 6 June should already have been advised that they need to attend this weekend for dose two.
“We also have a limited number of spots for people having their first dose, but I must emphasise those are fully booked so we cannot accommodate any extra walk-ins this weekend.
“If you have a booking for a first dose at this weekend’s clinic please do not bring anyone else with you for a first dose because our vaccine supplies are fully allocated.
“For those presenting for dose two we already have your details so we’ll do all we can to have you in and out as quickly as possible. It would help us greatly if those presenting on Sunday could present at approximately the same time of day as you did on Sunday 6 June.”
Ms Scott said it was very important that everyone coming for dose two remembered to bring their vaccination record card.
“When you had your first dose on 5 or 6 June you would have received a vaccination record card,” Ms Scott said.
“Please remember to bring that with you, along with your ID, Medicare card, and a pen.
“Weather forecasts suggest we might see some rain so please dress accordingly.”
Anyone receiving a COVID-19 vaccination should ensure they have not had any other vaccination, including a flu vaccination, within the previous seven days.
