New COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic opens at South Morang
Northern Health has this morning commenced operating a new COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at the Plenty Ranges Arts & Convention Centre (PRACC) in South Morang.
PRACC is located at 35 Ferres Boulevard, South Morang and will be open from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm, seven days a week.
Jan Kourlis, pictured above who was first in line said after her receiving her vaccination, “The staff were fabulous, they told me exactly what you need to know and I recommend it highly!”
The Vaccination Clinic at Northern Hospital Epping will operate until Sunday, June 20. Any bookings made for after this date, will be transferred through to PRACC. The Staff Vaccination Clinic at the Main Ward Block at Northern Hospital Epping will continue to run as normal.
Debra Bourne, Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer, said “The response of multiple teams at Northern Health to enable us to establish a large COVID vaccination unit off site in such a short period of time has been remarkable. It was a wonderful example of staff living our values and working together to overcoming multiple hurdles to create a service in such a short time frame. I am extremely thankful for the hard work that they all have shown”.
We take this time to thank all the hard working and dedicated staff at the Northern Hospital Epping Vaccination Clinic. Your hard work does not go unnoticed! We are also grateful to our community for coming forward to get vaccinated – you are all playing your part in the fight against COVID-19.
A big thank you to the many staff involved in the transition and preparation of the new vaccination clinic. This would not be made possible without your continued dedication!
