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.
The City requests that you bring your own pen.
We offer the Whooping Cough vaccination to pregnant mothers from 20 weeks gestation and fathers of newborn babies. Other family members should see their GP for this vaccination.
We have a supply of the 2020 flu vaccine.
The City only offers the free flu vaccine to those who are eligible, including:
- All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. If you are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and aged 50 years or over you are eligible for the Pneumovax 23 vaccination to protect against Pneumococcal.
- All adults aged 65 years and over. 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.
- Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)
To see if you meet the criteria, visit www.health.gov.au/health-topics/immunisation
If you do not meet these criteria for the free flu vaccine, please contact your local GP to arrange your vaccine privately.
