Changes to immunisation program due to COVID-19
To keep our community safe we have made some changes to the way we conduct our community immunisation sessions.
Face masks and clothing
If you are over 12, you must wear a face mask for your immunisation appointment. Visit the Department of Health and Human Services website for more information on face masks.
Make sure you wear short sleeve or loose-fitting clothes. This makes it easier to administer the vaccine.
Check in procedures
If you or your child are feeling unwell on the day of your vaccine with a fever, runny nose, sore throat, or cough, you must reschedule. You will not be charged a fee for cancelling appointments.
On arrival, you will need to scan the QR code.
Hand sanitiser is available on entry.
Do not arrive any earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment. You will be asked to come back closer to your appointment time if you attend too early.
We have made some changes to our timetable so that we can provide a COVIDSafe environment and keep your family safe.
See our online booking system for a full list of upcoming immunisation sessions.
We are beginning a staged return to our community venues with some immunisation sessions returning to Hawthorn Community Precinct, Meeting rooms 3 and 4 and Greythorn Community Hub.
The Parkview room at Camberwell Library remains our main location at this stage of the transition.
Only one parent or guardian can accompany a child to their immunisation appointment.
