Pop-up clinic open in Salisbury Community Hub
A pop-up vaccination clinic in the Salisbury Community Hub is now accepting walk-ins until Friday 19 November to raise vaccination rates in the north.
City of Salisbury worked closely with SA Health representatives to provide the pop-up service in the Hub, a convenient location in the heart of the City, to help drum up vaccination numbers.
Initially the pop-up clinic will be in the Hub’s specially designed Kaurna Rooms on the ground floor, normally used for Council’s immunisation programs, until a semi-permanent marquee clinic is set up adjacent to the Hub on James Street, Salisbury. This marquee clinic will be open from Tuesday 23 November until 4 December 2021 for seven days a week, 8am to 4pm.
This new clinic will complement the two larger permanent centres in Elizabeth and further away in Wayville – a relief for those experiencing transport limitations.
With the South Australian borders set to open next Tuesday, Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said she was eager to see more people vaccinated before this date.
Low vaccination rates in the north have been under the spotlight for several weeks with comparisons made to other inner-city councils which sit in the eighties and nineties percentile for double vaccinations.
The pop-up service administers the Pfizer vaccine and will be available between 9.30am to 3.30pm daily until Friday 19 November, at the Salisbury Community Hub on 34 Church Street, Salisbury, next to Parabanks Shopping Centre.
