CENTRAL Coast Labor MPs met with members of the Central Coast GP Alliance Working Group to discuss the rollout of vaccinations on the Central Coast. The consensus was that the Central Coast needs a mass vaccination centre.
Whilst local GPs are offering vaccinations, waiting lists are already long and the rollout of the Pfizer vaccine will further add to the delay.
GPs are still coping with their normal duties of seeing patients as well as now doing vaccinations.
If we are to ensure our coast's population is vaccinated to a high level, like the Hunter and lllawarra, the Central Coast should have a mass vaccination hub.
The government needs to address this issue to protect the 345,000 plus residents of the Central Coast.
Central Coast Labor MPs will write to the NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard and the Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt as a matter of urgency.
