Football NSW is throwing its support behind NSW Health in promoting Sport Super Sunday to encourage vaccinations this weekend.
Priority appointments for people aged 16-39 from 12 Local Government Areas of concern are available at Qudos Bank Arena and the NSW Health Vaccination Centre at Sydney Olympic Park and the Vaccination Centre at Macquarie Fields this Sunday 29 August, for all sports lovers.
“I want to encourage our Football family in NSW to do their bit by taking part in the Sport Super Sunday organised by NSW Health. Make an appointment and then attend wearing your club colours or favourite football jersey,” said Football NSW CEO Stuart Hodge.
“We as a sport want to make a difference to help get back to playing and by supporting this initiative and by pushing up vaccination rates it will get us a step closer to enjoying our beautiful game once more.”
NSW Deputy Secretary Susan Pearce called on everyone who loves to play or watch sport to run up the score this weekend and set a new Super Sunday vaccination record.
“Sporting codes will go head-to-head to compete for the NSW Vaccination Championship Cup, and know that they are doing the best thing for their health, and the health of their community,” Ms Pearce said.
“Previous Super Sundays helped vaccinate more than 10,000 supermarket and food industry workers, construction workers and university students in one day, but now it’s time for you to step up for your favourite team or sport.
“Our vaccination hubs have bookings available for people aged 16 – 39 in local government areas of concern across Sydney and we want to see sporting clubs rally together and promote vaccinations across their teams.”
Those aged 16 to 39 who live in Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield or Penrith, should make a booking at www.nsw.gov.au/vacc16-39.
You can also book by calling on 1800 57 11 55.
Wear your team kits, colours, or gear and take a selfie to post on your social media channels with the hash tag #vaccinationchampion
If you can’t make it this Sunday, NSW Health have other vaccination appointments at its centres over the next two weeks.
Every person who gets vaccinated is making a difference and will help get us all back to sport sooner.
By teaming up, NSW Health can vaccinate as many people as possible to stop the spread of COVID-19.
