SWRHA turns back vaccine walk-ins

The South West Re­gion­al Health Au­thor­i­ty (SWRHA) turned away dozens of peo­ple at the new­ly opened vac­ci­na­tion site at Pow­er­Gen, Syne Vil­lage Pe­nal yes­ter­day af­ter they showed up with­out ap­point­ments. 

Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the SWRHA, some of these walk-ins were, how­ev­er, suc­cess­ful in re­ceiv­ing a jab.

“While a man­age­able gath­er­ing turned up at the lo­ca­tion, sev­er­al with­out con­firmed ap­point­ments, most were vac­ci­nat­ed, where­as the re­main­der were en­cour­aged to make an ap­point­ment. All our val­ued clients were in high praise of the smooth and cus­tomer-fo­cused process,” it said. 

It re­minds the pop­u­la­tion that vac­cines will be ad­min­is­tered by ap­point­ment on­ly at their three dis­trict health fa­cil­i­ties, 31 health cen­tres and two mass sites at the South­ern Acad­e­my for the Per­form­ing Arts (SAPA) & Pe­nal Pow­er­Gen fa­cil­i­ty. 

The SWRHA said some 3,000 peo­ple with con­firmed ap­point­ments were ex­pect­ed to re­ceive their first dose of a COVID-19 vac­cine at all its health lo­ca­tions yes­ter­day.
