KAMS and partners are hosting a Broome-wide COVID19 Vaxathon at Goolarri next Tuesday 7 & Thursday 9 September from 10am to 6pm.
The event is a collaboration with BRAMS, Kimberley Population Health Unit, Royal Flying Doctors Services, Kimberley Pharmacy Services, and Nirrumbuk. The Broome Vaxathon is an opportunity for any Kimberley residents over twelve years of age to receive their first or second dose of the COVID19 Pfizer vaccine. There will be food and entertainment, as well as the opportunity to win some great raffle prizes. Please see the flyer here.
Many of you will have seen on the news the devastating impact the COVID19 Delta strain is having on Australian communities, including Aboriginal communities in regional New South Wales. In Australia, thousands of people have been affected, and over 1000 people have died. Many without being able to see their families or loved ones. We do not want this to happen in the Kimberley. COVID19 is becoming a disease of the unvaccinated.
Ensuring the Kimberley is vaccinated against COVID19 is a priority for the region. Please encourage your family and friends to get vaccinated. The COVID19 vaccine is the best defence we have as a region to protect ourselves, our family, and our communities.
