Last updated:  Wednesday 12 January 2021

The Stawell Regional Health vaccination team is working tirelessly to ensure we meet current demand here, locally,  for our community to receive their vaccines without the need to travel outside of the region. We are all in it together, and need to be, to keep our community safe and ask that you are patient with the team as they work to protect our community!

  • Every Victorian aged 16 years and over will be eligible to access a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine at Stawell Regional Health
  • The SRH COVID Vaccination clinic are open on a number of days – please keep an eye on social media to get regular updates
  • The vaccines are provided free of charge
  • The vaccine program is overseen by the Stawell Medical Centre GPs who works with a team of Stawell Regional Health specially trained immunisation nurses.

So where do you start if you are ready to receive a COVID vaccine?

  • Consider your individual health issues and discuss any questions you may have with your GP
  • On you arrival at the COVID clinic you will be asked screening questions about your current health
  • The actual time, once it is your turn, for getting your jab will be quick – about 5 mins with the GP or Vaccine Nurse followed by 15min – 30 minutes in the observation area where you will be monitored for any immediate reactions before you can leave.

A message on the Vaccination Clinic, phone number 5358 6550, will provide updates on planned vaccination clinics.

The number of places available each session will depend on the number of available vaccines.
