First COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Alexandra District Health
COVID-19 vaccinations for Alexandra District Health
Staff from Alexandra District Health, Darlingford Upper Goulburn Nursing Home, Kellock Lodge and Menzies Support Services, along with local emergency services personnel, received their first dose of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine at a pop-up vaccination clinic on Wednesday 5th May. A mobile vaccination team from GV Health Public Health Unit operated the clinic to assist with the vaccination rollout for Alexandra.
We are working closely with Kilmore District Health to hold more AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccination clinics at Alexandra which will help make the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible to the local community, minimising the need for people to travel to larger vaccination centres.
The COVID-19 vaccine is an important next step in reducing the risk of COVID-19 outbreaks and to help keep us all COVIDsafe. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine rollout visit https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/covid-19-vaccines/getting-vaccinated-for-covid-19
