SALHN’s mobile vaccination clinic has been developed following consultation with local community groups and stakeholders. 

SALHN COVID-19 Program Executive Lead, Catherine Hughes said the mobile team is made up of clinical and administration staff who are trained to provide outreach vaccinations to the community. 

“We have been engaging and consulting with local community groups and stakeholders to look for opportunities and ways in which we could expand access for residents of southern Adelaide to the COVID-19 vaccine even further,” Ms Hughes said. 

“As a result of this consultation, we have established a mobile vaccination team to enable us to provide the vaccine to people within a setting they are most comfortable and supported in. 

“In its first days, the team provided the vaccine to over 25 long stay inpatients at the Repat Health Precinct and more recently to attendees at the Masjid Omar Bin Alkhattab Mosque following the Friday prayer service. 

“We are continuing to work with more community leaders to plan more outreach clinics across the region and look forward to providing the community with details once these are finalised.” 

Bookings for the COVID-19 vaccine are available at the Noarlunga COVID-19 vaccination clinic. You can check your eligibility and book in for a vaccine via the SA Health website.
