This morning South Australian Premier Steven Marshall addressed the public to announce a new vaccination hub opening in Pooraka.
Marshall said that authorities are looking at pop-ups right across the state so everyone in SA 16 and over can get to a location close to them, and have a smooth experience in protecting themselves from COVID-19.
The 1,500 per week vaccination clinic will be opening at the SA produce market which homes 3,500 businesses and holds 13,500 employees.
The new clinic will take walk in appointments, as Marshall noted they are looking at areas where there are low vaccination numbers which is why the decision to open this new clinic was made.
This announcement comes following yesterdays press conference where Marshall revealed that the Wayville vaccination clinic will see a huge ramp up of appointments for both first and second dose vaccines.
The Wayville clinic has seen the space go from 42 bays up to 96 bays with Marshall saying they are looking for more and more opportunities to get more vaccines administered right around the state and the country.
With the total number of positive cases in truck drivers from interstate reaching six, health authorities are still on high-alert to best protect the state.
