Kilsyth Basketball is doing its part to help reopen Victoria and return to basketball, partnering with EACH Health to open a Covid Vaccination Hub at the Kilsyth Sports Centre.
The initiative will assist the Victorian Government’s Covid vaccination efforts by opening our courts to EACH, providing the local community with additional vaccine appointments. The new centre will be stationed on Courts 3 and 4 at Kilsyth, and has the potential to serve up to 1000 Covid vaccination appointments daily.
Kilsyth Basketball CEO, Will van Poppel, is pleased to pair with EACH to provide the community service, which aims to speed up the states reopening and move us closer to a return to basketball.
“We were approached by EACH Health to see if we could set up a Vaccination Hub here at the Kilsyth Sports Centre, and we’re very happy to help in any way possible as this will help the broader community and community sport,” van Poppel said.
“We were asked off the back of a very successful Flu Immunisation program partnership with Yarra Ranges Council in 2020, and we are excited to do our part to help progress the state’s vaccination efforts with this new initiative.”
“I see vaccinations as the best way to us getting back and staying back.”
The Kilsyth Vaccination Hub opens on Monday September 20. To book your Covid vaccine appointment at Kilsyth, click here.
