Glebe, Waterloo, Redfern and Marrickville are at the centre of a Covid vaccine push – with health officials concerned over low vaccination rates and rising case numbers.
Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Marianne Gale said: “If you live in those suburbs, come forward to get vaccinated.
“Please look out for symptoms and get tested if you have even the mildest of symptoms.”
Pop-up Covid-19 vaccine clinics are open at Glebe and Green Square / Zetland this week run by Sydney Local Health District. Pfizer appointments are available for anyone aged 16-59, and you don’t need to be in a local area of concern to book.

Green Square/Zetland clinic
