With the COVID-19 outbreak facing communities around Katherine and Robinson River, Anyinginyi Health Aboriginal Corporation has ramped up its mobile vaccination clinic in the Barkly in order to keep the community safe.
This week the van has been parked and set up in Peko Park from 9am till 12pm on Wednesday and Thursday, with the number of people requesting the vaccine being a constant and steady addition to the number of community members vaxxed.
Those who get vaccinated get the latest in fashion statements, with everyone getting a deadly red shirt that shows who is leading the way keeping the community safe, as well as phone credit and a ticket in a weekly draw for a gift basket.
For those who get their second vaccine, a $25 IGA voucher is available.
The mobile clinic van will be in Peko Park from 9am till 12pm again this morning for anyone who wishes to protect themselves and the community.
