The facility will operate from:

  • noon – 10pm on weekdays
  • 8am – 6pm on weekends

Eligible healthcare workers will be able to make appointments through an invitation-only platform.

All recipients will be required to provide:

  • proof of employment at an aged-care facility or as a disability care worker and,
  • photo ID before receiving the vaccine.

This facility is part of a collaboration between Macquarie, the Federal Government and Sonic Healthcare – a renowned healthcare provider with specialist operations in general practice medicine, pathology, and radiology.

Macquarie University is delighted to partner with Sonic Healthcare, with the support of Federal Government funding, to provide a facility on our campus, that will contribute to the vital national effort to vaccinate against COVID-19.
