Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and until further notice, the City of Greater Bendigo will undertake all public immunisation sessions from:

Strathdale Community Centre
155 Crook Street, Strathdale

Strathdale Community Centre has been chosen as the only immunisation venue because it is a large venue that supports good social distancing measures and has accessible car parking. By having only one designated venue the City is better able to follow the necessary hygienic practices required.

To help limit numbers inside the clinic, the City requests only one parent/carer attend with their child and that you bring your own pen

Immunisation is a free service provided by the City of Greater Bendigo to protect the health and wellbeing of the general population. We immunise in accordance with the National Immunisation Program. To find out about what vaccine is given at what age to children, school children and at-risk groups, go to the Australian Government Department of Health: National Immunisation Program Schedule.

School vaccines

Due to COVID-19 social distancing and enhanced hygiene requirements, the City of Greater Bendigo immunisation service is not currently attending schools to administer:

  • Year 10 Immunisation of Meningococcal ACWY
  • Year 7 Immunisation of Human papillomavirus (HPV) and Diphtheria-tetanus-whooping cough (dTpa)
    • Note: your school will notify you when the second dose of HPV is due.

Replacing the in-school service are the public immunisation sessions held at Strathdale Community Centre where all students are welcome to receive their regular immunisations:

  • No booking required
  • Only one parent/carer attend the session (you will be screened prior to entry) 
  • Bring your own pen to complete the school consent card
  • Your child must be accompanied by an adult who is over 18 years old. If a parent/carer is unable to attend with the student we will able to obtain verbal consent if you are available via telephone
  • You must wait 15 minutes after vaccination before leaving

We will be in regular contact with the schools to update them on attendance. Alternately, you can also visit your GP.

Students under 20 years old who have missed out on previous school vaccines are eligible to receive these vaccines too.

Influenza vaccine

We have a supply of flu vaccine for pregnant women, children aged six months to under five years and a limited number for people aged over 65 years or who meet the National Immunisation Program criteria. If you have a chronic medical condition we would prefer that you see your GP as we do not have access to your medical records.

To see if you meet the criteria, visit www.health.gov.au/health-topics/immunisation

Please note, the City only provides the flu vaccine to people that meet the criteria in the above link.
