Following the announcement of Football NSW making their facilities at Valentine Sports Park available for vaccinations, they have thrown their support behind NSW Health in promoting the Sport Super Sunday event this weekend, to encourage vaccinations.
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.
Football NSW CEO Stuart Hodge voiced his words of encouragement for all those within the Football NSW community to contribute to the drive this weekend.
“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.
“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 Secrertary Susan Pearce also stated her willingness for all sport lovers to get vaccinated this weekend and to set a new Super Sunday record for vaccinations.
“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.”
