Please note Qudos Bank Arena NSW Health Vaccination Centre has limited ability to cater for people requiring high levels of assistance. Due to the nature of the centre configuration and the COVID safe procedures put in place to keep our visitors safe, those with an appointment are required to navigate stairs as they move through the centre. In our other Western Sydney Local Health District vaccination hub at Blacktown Hospital, we have alternate pathways to ensure everyone’s needs are catered for. This includes people:
who require wheelchair access.
who are unable to walk long distances or down 34 steps independently.
who require a carer to come with them to be vaccinated.
who would like to be vaccinated in a low stimulus environment.
