Covid 19 Mass Vaccination Centre Wollongong

Sherson Architecture was commissioned by Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District to design Wollongong’s COVID 19 vaccination centre, which involved the conversion of 9000sqm of existing space at Wollongong mall. The space was previously used as a large retail outlet. Our job was to convert the space into a functional, clinical patient friendly environment where people could be vaccinated in 1 hour. The space has been designed for 7000 vaccinations in 1 day and operates over 3 levels. The ground floor comprises of a check in area and vaccination space for vulnerable peoples, the first floor houses a large vaccination area for the general population and pathology spaces while the upper level is reserved for staff and back of house clinical functions.
