Sydney (Tribune International, NSW Gov Release, 2 June 2021): The Service NSW app is the latest tool to be used in the NSW Government’s push to rollout the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly and as safely as possible.
From today people aged 40-49 will be able to register their interest for the vaccine directly on the Service NSW app, with other age groups to follow when it is their turn.
People who register will be contacted to book via email when appointments become available.
These invitations can be targeted by location depending on booking availability and supply of the vaccine in their local area.
Those aged 50 and over should visit nsw.gov.au to book their AstraZeneca vaccine now.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the Service NSW app is used by five million people across NSW.
“The Service NSW app has been a game changer during the pandemic and will now play an important part in our vaccine rollout,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“It will now be even easier to register your interest for the COVID-19 vaccine.”
Minister for Digital and Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said this is another example of the NSW Government using technology to strengthen our state’s response to the pandemic.
“In a pandemic you need to respond with speed and accuracy and the Service NSW technology will bring millions of customers a step closer to receiving the vaccine,” Mr Dominello said.
