More Bunnings stores will provide easy access to COVID-19 vaccines for Victorians, with the iconic hardware store today adding five extra pop-up vaccination sites at new locations.
The Bunnings vaccination pop-ups, which kicked off last week in Keysborough, Melton East and Wodonga, focus on a range of outer metropolitan and regional locations—increasing points of access to the vaccine in key Local Government Areas, an official press release said.
From today, pop-ups hosted in store carparks will open at the following Bunnings locations and will be open daily until Sunday, 27 March:
- Mildura – 639-665 Fifteenth Street, 8.00am to 12.00pm
- Craigieburn – 700 Hume Highway, 8.00am to 12.00pm
- Mill Park – 761 Plenty Road, 8.00am to 12.00pm
- Tarneit – 83 Leakes Road, 7.30am to 12.30pm
- Sunshine – 480 Ballarat Road, 7.30am to 12.30pm
Further vaccination pop-ups will open at additional Bunnings stores next week and Victorians 12 and older will be able to attend without a booking to receive their first, second or third dose.
Over the coming weeks, Victoria’s health services will be staging dozens of additional vaccination pop-ups to support outer-suburban, regional and culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
While more than 63 per cent of Victorians over 16 have had a third dose, the figure is lower among people who became eligible more recently—with 42 per cent of people aged 18 to 29 and 53.6 per cent of people in their 30s having received three doses.
You can book the next dose of the vaccine today at a GP or pharmacy, or book at a vaccination centre at www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/
