Vaccination Hub Bulletin – 15 November 2021

November 15, 2021

Dear colleagues,

It is great to see daily cases in Victoria continue to trend downwards and to see the state closing in on the 90 per cent double vaccinated target for people aged 12 and up.

If you’re eligible for a booster dose, please consider getting it done this week if you haven’t already. A booster dose makes the protection from your initial doses even stronger and longer lasting.

On Tuesday 23 November at 2pm, Marion Kainer and I will host a staff webinar covering latest vaccination updates including booster doses, vaccination for 5-11 years olds (slated for early next year), rapid antigen testing, community-acquired COVID cases in schools and childcare, and how to keep ourselves safe in a post-lockdown world. The Zoom link will be distributed closer to the date.
