Bendigo Health’s community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic has opened to the public today.
The clinic, located at 113-133 Mollison Street, has been transformed into a space capable of vaccinating thousands of people each week.
The Clinic has 40 cubicles and large waiting and recovery areas. It will be open seven days a week.
Member for Bendigo West, Maree Edwards, received her COVID-19 vaccination on the first day of operation. She encouraged others to visit the vaccination centre and get their vaccine.
Bendigo Health Board Chair, Bob Cameron said he hoped the new central location of the clinic would encourage more people to get their vaccination.
“This Clinic is for anyone in the Loddon Mallee, not just in Bendigo,” Mr Cameron said.
“We need as many people as possible to be vaccinated now.”
The Clinic is open seven days a week, from 10am-5pm.

Walk in appointments are available daily from 10am-12pm and 1pm-5pm.
