Augusta Park Primary School, Risdon Park Primary School and Hincks Avenue Primary School, are among 40 sites in low vaccination council areas, set to be transformed into vax hubs.

In a bid to boost the sluggish jab rates in young students, the shot will be offered in 10 schools per week on Fridays and Saturdays, beginning next weekend, before they are reopened 9 weeks later for the second dose.

Augusta Park Primary and Risdon Park Primary have vaccinations booked in for Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4.

While Hincks Avenue Primary are booked in for the hub on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11.

On Fridays, vaccinations will only be available for students and their families, and on Saturdays the pop-up sites will be open to the general public.

For a student to receive a vaccination their parent must be present and give consent.
