To further meet the increased demand from Victorians coming forward to be vaccinated, new and convenient drive-through sites will be added in Wyndham, Melbourne’s south east and in the Hume/Whittlesea area.
These sites are being established in partnership with community, local government and industry groups. More details on the site locations will be provided soon.
To help reach our target, a new campaign has been launched today, encouraging Victorians to get vaccinated quickly – to protect themselves, their loved ones, and the entire community.
Initially running across print and digital platforms, the campaign will expand to television and target different age groups as we move through the rollout.
There are over 200,000 COVID-19 vaccine appointments available now and more will become available. If you have any questions or concerns you can talk to a GP, pharmacist or to a senior and experienced immuniser at our state-run sites. The best vaccine you can get, is the one that you can get now.
Increasing our vaccination coverage in Victoria is particularly important given the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks and the potential for further interstate incursions this year.
All Victorians are encouraged where possible to book their vaccination appointment by visiting portal.cvms.vic.gov.au or by phoning the Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
