Woolworths will be setting up its own vaccination hubs in Sydney’s west for employees.
Two closed Big W department stores in Wetherill Park and Canterbury-Bankstown will be converted to vaccination hubs for Woolies employees who live in the areas (and their households) to get COVID-19 vaccines.
“As Australia’s largest private employer, we’re delighted to be playing our part in accelerating the national vaccine rollout with the federal government,” Woolworths head of COVID-19 response Ross Spencer said.
Another hub is in the works for a Big W store in Carnes Hill.
The Big W stores – which are all owned by Woolworths – have been shut since the Sydney lockdown began in June.
“Making vaccine access easy and simple is key to driving uptake,” Spencer said.
The Woolworths Group have been hosting pop-up clinics since July, administering more than 7,500 doses to frontline staff in roles across Supermarkets, BIG W and Distribution Centres.
