Southern NSW Local Health District is urging people to continue to come forward for testing and vaccination after two new COVID-19 cases were recorded in the 24 hours to 8.00pm last night.
The two new cases are in the Yass Valley region and are linked to known cases. Both cases are in Murrumbateman
This brings the total cases in SNSWLHD to 479 since the start of the current outbreak in June.
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.
First, second and booster vaccinations can be booked through the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder.
NSW Health state-run clinics are also 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.
