THERE were long queues inside Midland’s Centrepoint this week, but they weren’t lining up for a not-to-be-missed shopping deal.
WA’s newest COVID vaccine clinic opened for business on Monday next to the Woolworths store and the shopping centre was buzzing with hundreds of people queuing up for their shot.
The temporary clinic has been set up as part of the State Government’s plan to up our vaccination rates and Health Minister Roger Cook says it’s a convenient way to get protected.
“This new clinic at Centrepoint Shopping Centre will be a convenient location for people in Perth’s eastern suburbs to access vaccination,” he said.
“At Midland, people can get their vaccination and conveniently then buy groceries all in the one visit to the shopping centre.”
From Monday children aged 12 to 15 are eligible to receive the vaccine.
