COVID-19 Vaccines at Stawell Regional Health

Stawell Regional Health welcomed the news that the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine to regional Victorians is progressing and will become available locally to those people who choose to be vaccinated, in a very safe, inclusive and accessible way.

The medical, nursing and pharmacy teams have been preparing to receive, store and administer the COVID-19 vaccine in order to support the delivery of vaccinations in our community. Unfortunately, we do not yet have confirmed dates yet for vaccine distribution. The Commonwealth and State government are controlling the release and distribution of the vaccines, and we are ready for when our allocation arrives.

At this point in time SRH have been providing a vaccination program for our residents in our residential care facility and we will be rolling out our staff vaccination program as soon as we have vaccines available.

SRH will also be supporting the Stawell Medical Centre in the provision of a GP-run COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
