The Batemans Bay Soldiers Club will become a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic next month.

Southern NSW Local Health District today announced four walk-in venues over a 12-day period beginning in Queanbeyan on September 2.

Batemans Bay will have the clinic from Thursday, September 9, to Saturday, September 11.

Anyone aged 18 or older can attend the clinic without a booking and receive a free AstraZeneca vaccine.

SNSWLHD chief executive Margaret Bennett says she hoped the clinics would provide an added boost to the Eurobodalla Shire's strong vaccination rates by making it easier to receive the vaccine.

"Our staff will ensure that people register on site on the day they attend so that they get a record of their vaccination," she said.

"They can also book in a second vaccination date at the same time.

"We urge everyone in the community to come forward for their jab as high vaccination rates are essential to protect our loved ones and the broader community from the threat of this virus."
