Northern Sydney Local Health District A/Chief Executive Dr Tamsin Waterhouse said opening the hub was an exciting time for staff and the broader community.
“The Hornsby Vaccination Hub is an important milestone for our district and NSW as we continue to rally against COVID-19,” Tamsin said.
“A number of staff across our district have been affected by COVID both personally and professionally, so it is really rewarding to see them get vaccinated and further protect themselves from the virus.”
The first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been imported from overseas, but ongoing supply will be manufactured here in Australia.
Both the Pfizer/BioNTech and the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines are very good at protecting against severe illness and death, which is great news for all Australians.
The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will be given to people in two doses.
As of June 2021, the general public aged 60 and over are able to receive their AstraZeneca vaccine at the Hornsby Hospital COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic. Appointments are essential. To make your booking and for more information on the clinic, including its location, please click here.
