With all of the Covid confusion, regardless of where it's come from, you'd be forgiven for not knowing how to go about getting the Covid vax if you choose to.
We know that there are people in our community who do choose to be vaccinated and may be having trouble doing so- whether it's trouble with finding a clinic close to them or having trouble booking to get it done because of not having ID or a medicare card, or frustrating wait times etc, HRVic have decided to make sure that anyone in our community who chooses to partake- will not miss out.
We absolutely respect our community's autonomy ( the right to self govern) around their health and respect your choice whatever it may be. We do however, want to ensure that this isn't another reason for society to leave us out in the cold.
Already, the stigma and discrimination around someone who takes substances exists in spades and we don't need something else to move us to or keep us in 'the back of the line' in life.
There are already many venues and businesses that have decided that people can not enter or partake without being vaccinated.
Everyone in Australia aged 12 and over can receive a COVID-19 vaccination If they choose.
The Covid vaccines are FREE.
You are allowed to travel more than 15km from home to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
There are a a few different types of vaccination clinics:
General Practices (GPs)

Hospital Immunisation Hubs
Outreach Services and 'Pop Up' clinics

Vaccine Clinics List
A 'Pop Up' vaccine clinic is a non permanent location where you can get your jab between certain dates. You may still need to book.
Please check with individual locations to avoid disappointment.
A 'Walk In' vaccination clinic is a clinic where you don't need to book.
The Victorian Government is bringing the vaccines to areas that need them most, by launching a massive community pop-up vaccination program targeting 100 priority postcodes across the state.
