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, has accessible car parking and 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.
The following session times will take place until further notice:
Tuesdays, 2.30pm – 6.30pm
Thursdays, 4pm – 6pm (Note: Thursday October 22 only, 10am – 11.30am and 4pm – 6pm)
Fridays, 9.30am – 11.30am (Note: No session Friday October 23 due to Grand Final Day Public Holiday)
Tuesdays, 2.30pm – 6.30pm
Thursdays, 4pm – 6pm (Note: Thursday November 26 only, 10am – 11.30am and 4pm – 6pm)
