First doses of Pfizer for 40-49 year olds administered, but patience key for bookings
The first community doses of the Pfizer Vaccine have been administered to 40-49 year olds at Warrnambool's Covid-19 Vaccination Centre this morning.
By days end around 500 people who had booked online, will have received their first dose.
South West Healthcare's Covid 19 Coordinator Sue Anderton, said it was pleasing to see that side of the vaccination program underway, but stressed patience is key when it comes to bookings.
"We understand the frustrations around booking and the phone lines going down, we are just doing our best to try and navigate around all of that" she said.
"The best way here in our region (to book), is to keep an eye out on our SWH Website and Facebook Page, we will offer links to the community as soon as they are available"
"If they click on the link and it doesn't work, or there is no times available, it means we are booked out, or do not have supply"
Ms Anderton said that as they receive updates on supply, they will communicate to the community via those platforms.
