Glen Innes residents may not have to wait much longer to circle a vaccination day in their calendar, as dates get released for its arrival at the Hunter New England satellite sites.
It comes as frontline workers from John Hunter Hospital (JHH), the region's hub location, started getting the jab on Monday.
With Tamworth's healthcare workers getting their injections on March 29, more information on the rollout is set to follow in the next few days, according to Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
While Glen Innes is not a satellite or 'spoke' site, Armidale, Barraba, Bingara, Boggabri, Denman, Guyra, Merriwa, Taree, Tingha, Vegetable Creek, Walcha, Warialda, Wallsend and Werris Creek are.
Michael DiRienzo, CEO of Hunter New England Local Health, said the response to the hub so far had been "overwhelmingly positive".
"Frontline healthcare workers will receive their first doses of the Pfizer vaccine today, thanks to the outstanding efforts of our staff who worked quickly to make this hub a possibility," he said.
"Our priority has always been to ensure our staff have access to vaccination facilities as close to their homes as possible, and we are extremely excited to see this process start today."
"This is why I have chosen to have the vaccine today," she stated.
"The jab was quick and I barely felt a thing. The whole process was simple and while it is not mandatory, I would encourage all everyone to get the vaccine as soon as they are able.
"I definitely feel that extra sense of security in caring for our patients now that I've been vaccinated."
Frontline healthcare workers are the first priority, and their jabs will be followed by a wider rollout of AstraZeneca vaccine, including to the general public, through the GP network.
