Doctor Jessie Hoang from the Ulladulla Respiratory Clinic is happy with the community's response when it comes to getting COVID-19 vaccinations but urges people not to become complacent.
The clinic is close to reaching the 20,000 vaccinations delivered milestone and Dr Hoang wants people to continue their good work.
"In general I think we are doing really well and the vaccination rate for our area is quite high - it's one of the best in the country," she said.
"I feel that our hard work has paid off and I am hoping in another two to four weeks that we will reach our target of 80 per cent coverage."
She is also waiting for NSW Government to say people 60-years and above can access the Pfizer vaccine and then she wants to push towards 90 percent coverage.
Currently, the centre runs more Pfizer clinics than AstraZeneca clinics.
People can now book their Pfizer jabs online at www.hotdoc.com.au and search for the Ulladulla Respiratory Clinic or phone the centre on 4455 5422.
Dr Hoang is also confident that the systems are in place to meet a possible spike in cases once restrictions are lifted.
"I think the health system is still quite strong and robust and so we should be able to handle a situation like that [a spike]," she said.
"So far it has been really good and we have not had a major outbreak - there have been a few sporadic cases but we have not had a major outbreak here to really test the system."
"I have managed a few people with severe needle phobia but Alex's was an interesting case because that was the first time that we used hypnosis to help a patient overcome a problem," she said.
"I had a chat with Alex before and after the appointment and he was really happy with the outcome."
Alex said to me one way or another he was going to be vaccinated. We were delighted to be involved."
The pandemic has been a long campaign for the staff members at the clinic.
"I think my staff are feeling a little tired and I am feeling a little bit tired," she said.
"We have been going strong since the first lockdown happened when we were asked by the Federal Government to set up the testing clinic in April/May last year and ever since then it has been a big roller coaster for us."
Fortunately, Dr Jessie has been able to recruit some more nurses to help with the vaccination clinic.They are looking forward to a restful Christmas holiday break.
She says you can never push the COVID-19 health guidelines enough.
"The strong message I would like to send to the community would be to follow all health advice at all times and check for updates regularly," she said.
"When you are out and about, wear a mask and wear it properly. Also, wash your hands and still try and social distance when you are in a public space.
"Don't be complacent because it [COVID-19] may come and creep into this area."
