SA’s first dedicated booster vaccination clinic to open in Mile End

A new popup vaccination clinic opens this Wednesday at Netball SA’s stadium at Mile End. The clinic will offer Moderna and be for boosters only.

More people will be able to access COVID-19 booster vaccinations, with the opening of a new popup vaccination clinic at the Netball SA’s stadium at Mile End on Wednesday 12 January.

The clinic will offer Moderna and be for boosters only and it will initially have the capacity to vaccinate up to 5,000 people a week, increasing to 15,000 per week in coming weeks.

Premier Steven Marshall said the site is centrally located and will play a key role in providing the important third dose of COVID-19 vaccine to help combat Omicron.

“Boosting your immunity by getting a third jab is the best thing you can do for your own health, the health of your family, friends and the broader community,” said Marshall.

“The Omicron variant is spreading like wildfire around the globe and increasing the booster vaccination rate in concert with mask wearing, social distancing measures and testing and contact tracing is vital to controlling its spread.

“The third dose will provide the best available defence against the Omicron variant, which we know shows immune escape compared to previous variants.

“South Australians who have had their second dose of any vaccine at least four months ago are strongly encouraged to roll up their sleeve for this booster.”

Chief Public Health Officer, Professor Nicola Spurrier, said the new clinic will provide much needed additional capacity for people to receive their important third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.

“The Omicron variant is driving the current large wave of cases across our state, and getting a third dose into the arms of all eligible South Australians will have an immediate impact on the health and safety of individuals, their families and the community,” Spurrier said.

“South Australians who have had their second vaccine dose four months ago are now eligible for their third dose and should make an appointment today.

“Data from around the world is showing three doses are needed to provide enhanced protection against transmission and serious illness from Omicron.”

The Mile End vaccination clinic will be open seven days a week from 8am to 4pm.

It is located at Netball SA Stadium, 155 Railway Tce, Keswick Terminal where you can enter the clinic via the Western Entrance.

The clinic is bookings-only for people over 18 years and online bookings are open.
