Southern NSW Local Health District is urging community members to continue to come forward for vaccination and to be alert for any symptoms that could signal COVID‑19, including headache, nausea, sore throat, runny nose, cough, loss of smell or taste, or fever. If symptoms appear, people must isolate and get tested immediately, and remain isolated until a negative result is received.
Everyone aged 12 years and over is eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be safe, effective and life-saving.
SNSWLHD has been notified of four new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8.00pm last night.
This brings the total cases in SNSWLHD to 467 since the start of the current outbreak in June.
The four new cases are in the Queanbeyan Palerang region. Three are in Karabar and are under investigation. One case is in Googong and is linked to a known case.
NSW Health state-run clinics are now offering a booster dose, using the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, to individuals aged 18 and over.
This booster shot will help people maintain a high level of protection against the COVID-19 virus, including the Delta variant.
People aged 18 years and older may receive a booster at least six months after receiving their second dose of any of the COVID-19 vaccines registered for use in Australia.
First, second and booster vaccinations can be booked through the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder.
