UFS unveil dedicated Covid vaccine clinic


Ballarat based pharmacy and medical group UFS is accepting bookings for Covid-19 vaccines at its new clinic in Ballarat.

The clinic, which opens today, will serve people eligible under 1B of the roll-out.
UFS CEO Lyn McLennan says the site at 18 Drummond Street North can deliver up to 150 jabs per day.
"We'll be able to vaccinate people in the 1B category to start with, so that's people over 70 and people with disabilities and chronic health issues."
"It also incudes any healthcare workers who weren't vaccinated in the first round with the Pfizer vaccine," Ms McLennan said.

Vaccination is free, is strictly by appointment only and is open only to those currently eligible.

Book online via www.ufs.com.au/vaccine 

Patients who are unable to book online can phone 4320 0891.

UFS continues to operate the Covid-19 testing clinic from its current location at 15 Errard Street North, Ballarat, which is separate to the dedicated vaccination clinic.
