Pop-up clinics target school communities

School communities are the focus of the coming Super Pfizer Weekend when COVID-19 vaccination clinics pop up at 3 high schools in the region.

The weekend coincides with second doses for those who were vaccinated at the first Super Walk In Weekend three weeks ago, and the clinics are open to anyone aged over 12.

West Moreton Health COVID-19 Response Executive Lead Matthew Tallis said the clinics were offered in partnership with the Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN.

“It’s a great opportunity for Mum, Dad and any kids aged over 12 to get vaccinated on the way home from soccer practice, ballet class or shopping,” Mr Tallis said.

“Getting vaccinated does not take long, so it won’t put a dint in your day.”

In 3 weeks’ time, the clinics will return to the high schools so local residents can get their second doses.

Where you can walk in for your vaccination this weekend (please present at least one hour before the clinic closes):

  • Bremer State High School, 133-153 Warwick Rd, Ipswich. 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
  • Ipswich CBD Community Vaccination Clinic, Nicholas St Precinct, 8am-4pm, 7 days a week, and until 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

People should bring their Medicare card and photo ID such as a driver’s licence with them on the day, along with a list of any medications they are currently taking.
