About 150 Aboriginal people received their COVID vaccinations at the old Bomaderry Homes site on Saturday as part of a weekend blitz to increase vaccination rates among Aboriginal people.
And there will be further vaccinations targeting the Aboriginal community at the Nowra PCYC on Wednesday, ahead of health workers returning in three weeks to give people their second jabs.
Aboriginal Population Health Worker Kiarra Smalle said Saturday's response was enthusiastic.
"This is the third clinic I've actually run and, to be honest, everyone's really grateful that we're providing this service to them," she said.
"They always have a couple of questions for the nurses, but overall they're really grateful for the opportunity."
The Shoalhaven's principal Aboriginal health worker, Sharon Bloxsome, said the clinic was a family affair.
"We've had many young people through with their mums and dads, who come in to support their children get the vaccination, so that's really good to see because a lot of the mums and dads have already been vaccinated so I think it's really important important that we encourage access for local teenagers throughout the Shoalhaven," she said.
She added some of the teenagers attending Saturday's clinic had struggled to book in for vaccinations using the existing booking system technology.
"So there's a level of anxiety and everyone's really relieved to get their first shot and they're walking away happy," Ms Bloxsome said.
The Bomaderry clinic was part of a state-wide vaccination blitz aimed at boosting vaccination rates in the Aboriginal community.
