COVID-19 vaccinations are now available for all Victorian healthcare and aged care workers, including private aged care workers, at Victorian Government vaccination clinics.
If you are aged 50 years and over you will receive the AstraZeneca vaccine and if you are under 50 you will receive the Pfizer vaccine.
If you are over 50 and will receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, from 17 May you will also be able to be vaccinated at participating GP clinics.
The vaccination is free.
See the information for healthcare workers and aged care workers on how to book your appointment and prepare for your vaccination, and for more information about the vaccines. All eligible healthcare and aged care workers should have received a letter of eligibility from the Department of Health via their employers. You can also use an eligibility declaration form.
Make a booking by phoning 1800 675 398 (press options 1, 1 and 1, rather than the previously advertised 3, 2 and 2). Translators are available by choosing option 2. Clinics are available in locations across Victoria.
