A new campaign has launched to encourage Western Australians to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible.
‘Roll up for WA’ features real frontline workers, who were among the first in WA to receive a vaccine, share their personal stories and commitment to protecting others as the reasons why they chose to ‘roll up their sleeve’.
If you’re over the age of 70, you’re eligible to receive an AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination now.
From Monday, May 3, anyone aged 50 years and over will also be eligible to receive the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination from State-run vaccination clinics.
Western Australians can roll up their sleeves at a number of State-run vaccination clinics, with two community clinics now open at the Claremont Showgrounds and near the Perth Airport at 2 George Wiencke Drive.
These community clinics will operate for seven days per week, opening from 8.30am to 3.30pm and people are able to book in via 13 COVID (13 26843).
Two more State-run community clinics, one in Joondalup and one in Kwinana will be established by the middle of May. Eligible people are also able to access COVID-19 vaccinations through selected General Practices (GPs), GP Respiratory Clinics and Aboriginal Medical Services.
A number of hospital-based clinics have also been established to vaccinate frontline health care, quarantine, border workers, and those working in high risk and critical areas.
Those eligible are encouraged to book their appointment by calling 13COVID (13 26843) or visit www.rollupforwa.com.au for more information.
All Western Australians who are receiving their COVID-19 vaccine, or who have already received their vaccine, are encouraged to become social media advocates by using the hashtag #RollUp4WA.
