Sport Super Sunday is being held at vaccination centres for the twelve local government areas of concern this weekend to help Team NSW beat COVID-19.

Plenty of appointments are available at Qudos Bank Arena and the NSW Health Vaccination Centre at Sydney Olympic Park and the Vaccination Centre at Macquarie Fields this Sunday, August 29, for all sports lovers.

NSW Deputy Secretary Susan Pearce called on everyone who loves to play or watch sport to run up the score this weekend and set a new Super Sunday vaccination record.

"Sporting codes will go head-to-head to compete for the NSW Vaccination Championship Cup, and know that they are doing the best thing for their health, and the health of their community," Ms Pearce said.

"Previous Super Sundays helped vaccinate more than 10,000 supermarket and food industry workers, construction workers and university students in one day, but now it's time for you to step up for your favourite team or sport.

"Our vaccination hubs have bookings available for people aged 16 – 39 in local government areas of concern across Sydney and we want to see sporting clubs rally together and promote vaccinations across their teams.

"It would be great to see people wearing team colours at our hubs to go into the draw for some great prizes and a chance to prove which code came out the strongest."

Those aged 16 to 39 who live in Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield or Penrith, should make a booking via the NSW Government website.

Wear team uniforms, colours, or gear and take a selfie to post on your local club sites with the hash tag #vaccinationchampion

If you can't make it this Sunday, we have other vaccination appointments at our centres over the next two weeks.

Every person who gets vaccinated is making a difference and will help get us all back to sport sooner.

By teaming up, we can vaccinate as many people as possible to stop the spread of COVID-19.
