Dubbo has recorded 34 new cases of COVID-19 up until 8pm on Friday, August 27.
Across the Western Local Area Health District in total there were 42 new cases. Including those in Dubbo there were also six cases in Bourke, one in Bathurst and one in Mudgee.
It brings the total to 495 cases in the Western LHD.
In the Far west there were four new cases, all in Wilcannia. This brings the total to 69 cases in the Far West Local Health District, with 58 of those in Wilcannia, six in Broken Hill and one who has left the area and is now in Queensland.
The figures come this morning as the Western NSW Local Health District establishes the state's first drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Dubbo Showground, which is also just the second of its kind in Australia. The new drive-through vaccination clinic will operate at the Ewan MacInnes Pavilion at Dubbo Showground seven days a week and is expected to initially be able to deliver upward of 200 vaccinations each day.
It will be more accessible for people with mobility issues, allow entire households to receive their vaccinations at the same time and will be much easier for parents and carers, who can accompany their kids and dependents.
Bookings are essential, and people can make a booking by visiting the WSLHD website. Bookings are available already.
