In an effort to better protect border communities, Darling Downs Health will stage a two-day COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Texas this week.

The Pfizer-only clinic will be held on Thursday 19 August and Friday 20 August from 8.30am to 5.30pm each day.

Everyone aged 16 years and above is encouraged to attend the vaccination clinic. However, residents over 60 years are reminded that Astra Zeneca is the preferred vaccination for that age group.

“This vaccination clinic will ensure better protection for communities around the border areas and Southern Downs,” Annette Scott, Health Emergency Operations Centre Executive Lead, said.

“We have seen how the COVID-19 landscape can change quite quickly so we want to ensure that residents in these areas have ready access to vaccinations.”

The two-day clinic will be held in the Memorial Hall and will welcome walk-in appointments only.

If you have questions or concerns about COVID-19 vaccinations, please contact your GP.

The Texas clinic follows on from the recent Goondiwindi clinic which saw more than 3000 residents take up the vaccine. If you plan to attend the clinic, please bring ID, your Medicare card, and a pen.
