"We're really keen to make sure our community has access," she said.

"We've done about 400 vaccines is past few weeks and we haven't seen any significant side effects like what's been mentioned so we're really keen to get this out into our community."

"Everybody's been fine, if there are any symptoms that you're not feeling well, have a couple of panadol and sometimes it takes a couple of days but all good."

The eligibility criteria for people to receive the jab includes:

- adults 50+ years
- adults with underlying health conditions
- Health care workers
- High risk workers

The vaccinations will be taking place at Neighbourhood House Wednesday and Friday, those looking to book are urged to call 5232 5331.
