BATHURST DRIVE-THRU PFIZER VACCINATION CLINIC AT MOUNT PANORAMA

Pit Lane at the iconic Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit is set to be transformed into a Drive-Thru COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccination Clinic.


Member for Bathurst Paul Toole is urging residents who aren’t yet vaccinated to use the opportunity of a Drive-Thru Clinic to get the jab as the state moves to greater freedoms once the 70 per cent and 80 per cent vaccination rates are achieved.


“These vaccinations are by appointment only and will be available from Tuesday, October 5 until Saturday, October 9,” Mr Toole said.


“The drive-thru option at Mount Panorama means getting vaccinated has never been easier.”

Mr Toole said the Western NSW Local Health District is partnering with the Australian Defence Force to stage the Pop-Up Drive-Through Pfizer Vaccination Clinic in Bathurst.
