All state-run vaccination centres in Victoria, including Bendigo Health, will administer the second dose of Pfizer vaccine at least six weeks after the first dose.
A six week minimum interval means more Victorians can receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, providing protection against hospitalisation and severe disease.

The following people will continue to be provided second doses at a three-week interval:
