Kimberly-Clark’s Millicent Mill, home to iconic household brands Kleenex and Viva, has teamed up with the South Australian Government and the Limestone Coast Local Health Network to provide regional South Australians with greater access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Kimberly-Clark vaccine pop-up clinic opened on Thursday 21 October and will vaccinate approximately 200 Kimberly-Clark employees, their families, and members of the local community.
Kimberly-Clark’s Millicent Mill Manager, Adam Carpenter believes the establishment of pop-up clinics such as this one across regional communities is an important part of South Australia’s vaccine rollout.
“We’ve seen firsthand how the Delta variant has impacted our colleagues in NSW and Victoria over the last few months and I believe we have a responsibility as one of the largest employers in the South-East region to work together with our local community to protect our loved ones and our most vulnerable”.
“The South Australian Government and our Local Health Network have done a tremendous job in boosting the vaccine rates within our regional communities and we are proud to play our part in Australia’s road to recovery” said Mr Carpenter.
“As we prepare to relax our borders and ease restrictions in South Australia, there has never been a more important time for people to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated to protect themselves, their friends and family, and the community” said Minister for Health and Wellbeing Stephen Wade.
Limestone Coast Local Health Network Chief Executive Officer, Ngaire Buchanan, said the pop-up clinic is a great opportunity for employees to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated in the workplace.
Pfizer Vaccinations will be provided onsite in a designated area by a team of nursing staff from the Limestone Coast Local Health Network.
