MEMBER for Bathurst Paul Toole is urging the community to make use of a vaccination centre that will begin operating from Kelso on Monday.
It will be based out of the Kelso Community Hub and only Pfizer vaccines will be available starting from noon on Monday, September 13 and running from 10am to 4pm subsequent days up until Friday.
"We're really urging everyone in the area around the Kelso Community Hub to get vaccinated," Orange Aboriginal Medical Service CEO Jamie Newman said.
"Its location has been chosen as it will allow people who don't have a vehicle or access to transport to have the opportunity to get the jab.
"We are working in collaboration with NSW Health as our community needs to get vaccinated and this location makes it very accessible."
During last week alone, 3781 locals were vaccinated thanks to the walk-in hub at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre, with Mr Toole calling it "an enormous success".
He thanked everyone who received their vaccination as well as all the volunteers and urged anyone who hadn't had a chance to get their jab to do so.
"If someone in your household has COVID-19, it's almost certain that everyone in that household will get it," he said.
"Vaccination in substantial numbers is our way through this as a community."
No bookings are required for the vaccination centre at the Kelso Community Hub, just turn up and be patient.
Vaccinations are also available at local pharmacies, GPs and CSU.
