HOSPITAL SWITCH NOT THE PLACE FOR VAX APPOINTMENTS

Chief Executive of the Western NSW Local Health District, Scott McLachlan is urging local residents not to call their local hospital to make an appointment to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

“Your hospital can help with all sorts of advice but they cannot make a COVID-19 vaccination appointment for you.”

“The Federal Government’s COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker is online and it will step you through a few questions to sort out which phase you’re eligible for vaccination in. If you’re eligible to be vaccinated it will then guide you through the process of making a booking.”

“We know a lot of people are very eager to get their vaccination underway, but using the Eligibility Checker is the right way to do it. Our hospital switch boards are taking dozens of calls a day, and we need our switch operators available to take calls on a whole range of clinical matters.”

Those who don’t have access to the internet can also call HealthDirect for assistance Ph: 1800 022 222.


DRAFT RENEWABLE ENERGY ACTION PLAN

100% Renewables was engaged by Central NSW Joint Organisation, acting through the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to develop a Renewable Energy Action Plan (REAP) for Weddin Shire Council. The aim of the REAP is to allow Council to identify and prioritise opportunities that will help to cost effectively increase the amount of renewable energy at its facilities and lower energy demand.

The Draft Weddin Shire Council REAP builds on past and continuing work by Council to improve energy efficiency and implement renewables, and puts a framework in place around future actions.

The Draft REAP comprises of the following three (3) main elements which are organised into short, medium and long term plans: -

  1. Onsite energy efficiency and renewable energy;
  2. Renewable electricity purchasing; and
  3. Sustainable transport energy.

The draft REAP is currently on display for comment and can be viewed on Council's Public Exhibition webpage or alternatively at Council’s Administration Building.

Written submissions are invited from the public and will be received up until 5:00pm on Friday 23 July 2021.
