AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic

The AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic

The ACT Government opened the COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Arena on Friday 3 September 2021.

The AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic is the ACT’s largest mass COVID-19 vaccination site.

It administers Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for eligible people.

The larger venue allows us to ramp up our capacity to meet expected increases in Pfizer supplies in the coming weeks and months.

With increased vaccine supply, the AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic will be able to double vaccination capacity in ACT Government clinics.

The COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic at Garran closed on Thursday 2 September to revert back to a COVID-19 testing centre.

All existing appointments at the Garran clinic, on or after Friday 3 September, have been moved to AIS Arena clinic.

How to get to the AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic

The AIS Arena COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic is located at 26 Leverrier St, Bruce.

It is open every day from 8am to 8:30pm.

Appointments must be booked ahead of time (no walk-in appointments).
