Hundreds of Lithgow residents rolled up their sleeves on Sunday, September 12 at the Civic Ballroom to get vaxxed.
The three-day walk-in COVID vaccine clinic saw 513 people vaccinated with their first dose. The hub is open on September 13 and 14 from 8am-3.30pm. AstraZeneca and Pfizer is available.
From September 13, a number of new restriction changes were also made for fully-vaccinated people:
- A group of five people can gather, as long as each person aged 16 and above is fully vaccinated.
- Children 12 years and under are not included among the five person limit.
- Children aged 13 to 15 are not required to have been double vaccinated, but are counted as part of the group of five.
- Each person 16 years and over must carry evidence of vaccination and produce it to a police officer on request.
- If not fully vaccinated (or in possession of a medical contraindication certificate) outdoor gatherings remain limited to two people.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole congratulated those who came forward for their jab on Sunday.
"This moves us one step closer to having our community vaccinated. Once again I congratulate the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District, the ADF, Police and all our volunteers on deck," he said.
