WA COVID jab clinic empty despite more cases, mask demands

Claremont Showground’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic was deserted on Sunday despite more hospitalisations and a nationwide push for mask mandates.

The community clinic was open but there was not a person in sight waiting to get the jab.

These scenes come after the State Government acknowledged the increasing demands within the health system forced to manage rising COVID-19 cases alongside winter demand and staff furlough pressure.

WA Health reported a total of 4356 new cases on Sunday — down from 5051 the previous day — bringing the total number of active cases in WA to 34,517.
