    Comments attributed to Health Minister Roger Cook:


    "Having access to a vaccination clinic in the local area is an additional measure toward getting everyone vaccinated and keeping the community safe.


    "The clinic at Armadale Central Shopping Centre will provide an alternative option for people to get their COVID-19 vaccines.


    "Our State-run clinics are in addition to the participating GPs, pharmacies, Aboriginal Medical Services and GP respiratory clinics, which are managed by the Commonwealth, to provide COVID-19 vaccines across WA.


    "Don't wait, get vaccinated.


    "It is now easier than ever before to get vaccinated."


    Comments attributed to Vaccine Commander Chris Dawson:


    "We are now in the phase of the COVID-19 vaccination program where we're working towards creating more opportunities, in more locations, for people to get vaccinated closer to home.


    "We are also increasing our focus in lifting vaccination rates amongst Aboriginal people and are working with the community to directly address issues of hesitancy and ensure that it is as easy as possible for Aboriginal people to get vaccinated.


    "We've all seen the devastating effects of COVID-19 around the world, and how quickly the Delta strain has spread across NSW and Victoria.


    "It takes time for your body to build immunity once you've been vaccinated - don't wait until Delta gets here to Roll up for WA.


    "There are appointments available in every corner of our State - visit rollupforwa.com.au to register and book your appointment."
