NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced she will utilise a Sydney stadium to vaccinate students living in eight 'hotspot' area.
Ms Berejiklian said the Qudos Bank Arena, located in Olympic Park in the city's west, will be used as a vaccination hub to jab 20,000 Year 12 students each week.
The push to vaccinate school age children comes despite Israel's mandated vaccine rollout for year 12 students to allow them to attend exams in person, resulting in a massive spike in cases of severe heart inflammation - known and Myocarditisiaconditis - with reported cases of the heart condition 25 times higher than normal.
The CDC has called an emergency meeting to discuss the issue adversely affecting the young stating it is investigating after the link between the vaccine and heart inflammation appears 'much worse than previously thought'.

The experimental drug is currently being administered worldwide without proper testing or safety protocols, an unprecedented situation for any other disease.
The premier on Thursday named eight new high-risk Sydney local government areas who must now wear masks at all times and cannot move within 5kms of their home for any reason unless 'exceptional circumstances'.
These areas include Canterbury-Bankstown, Fairfield, Liverpool, Blacktown, Cumberland, Parramatta, Campbelltown and Georges River LGAs.
NSW Police Commissioner, Mick Fuller, made reference on Friday to an anti-lockdown rally planned for Saturday, warning protesters they will be 'dealt with' by police officers and ADF soldiers.
'Don't come into Sydney to protest,' he said.

'If you do, you will be met by up to 1,000 police who will be ready to deal with you, whether that be via the health orders or other laws.'
Police Commissioner Mick Fuller formally requested help from the ADF on Thursday after Prime Minister Scott Morrison offered Premier Berejiklian support from the armed forces earlier in July.
Over 300 troops are set to door-knock homes and assist in roadblocks across Sydney with the lockdown to roll over until August 28.
NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard, said anyone breaking lockdown laws to attend Saturday's rally would 'have to be crackers'.
'You have to be crackers to go to that demonstration tomorrow because there will be a lot of people potentially with a deadly weapon - Delta,' he said.

Last Saturday's rally lead to 57 arrests when more than 10,000 people protested against lockdowns and government tyranny in the streets of Sydney.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison warned on Friday lockdowns could extend until next year, saying his decision would depend on the unpredictable nature of Delta variant and the number of people vaccinated.
Mr Morrison told radio 3AW during a radio interview on Thursday, 'The United Kingdom was at 65 per cent (and now) just over 70 per cent. So these are the sort of levels you're talking about'.
When asked if we would be out of lockdown by Christmas, he answered,'No one can give those guarantees because the virus is unpredictable.'
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and state premiers met Friday to discuss the COVID-19 strategy.
