Supported by Western NSW Local Health District, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) will begin administering second doses of COVID-19 vaccines this weekend in Forbes and other centres as the next phase of a region-wide vaccination blitz starts.
The ADF will return to more than 30 communities across the district in the next three weeks to hold second-dose clinics, which will result in thousands of residents being fully vaccinated.
The clinics over the next three weeks are only for second doses, the ADF will not deliver first doses, and they are not walk-in clinics.
The people who received the Pfizer vaccine will be contacted with advice on when they can return to their relevant clinic to receive their second dose.
Those who received AstraZeneca will be contacted with advice on how to receive their second dose of the vaccine, in line with the recommended interval between first and second doses. Locations and dates below for our region are as follows:
• Parkes: Northparkes Oval 14 September – 16 September
• Forbes: Council Town Hall 18 September – 20 September
