Victoria is launching a new program covering 100 postcodes that establishes community and school-based pop-ups in areas that need them most and where barriers to vaccination may exist.
Eight school-based pop-ups will initially begin administering vaccinations over the next two weeks, with many more to open soon.
The first eight school pop-up clinics will be at Point Cook Senior Secondary College, Tarneit Senior College, Werribee Secondary College Dandenong High School, Gladstone Park Secondary College, Roxburgh College, Brunswick Secondary College, and Lakeview Senior College. These are aimed at school students.
The next round of secondary schools will provide access to COVID-19 vaccines for students and their families, staff and those in the local community. Wyndham will not be included in this next round of schools.
The number of school-based pop-ups will expand rapidly, with approximately 70 school sites eventually earmarked for all members of the community.
Additional bookings will be available from Monday, 13 September at the Wyndham Vaccination Hub, Melton Drive-Through Vaccination Hub, Melbourne Showgrounds, Broadmeadows Town Hall, South Morang Plenty Ranges Arts and Convention Centre and the Ford Factory in Campbellfield. Several sites will also be extending opening hours until 8pm, and more Pfizer and AstraZeneca doses will be released this week across state sites.
