January 27th, 2022VACCINATION CLINIC OPENS KIDS APPOINTMENTS
Central Highlands Rural Health’s vaccination clinic at Kyneton Health has opened its doors to 5-11-year-old children on Tuesday and Friday mornings. Children will be welcomed by our friendly nurses as they make their way through the Enchanted Forest themed vaccination clinic. We are thrilled to have state of the art virtual reality headset on site for children to enjoy however use will be subject to availability. All children will receive a goodie bag and lollipop available when they attend their appointment.
Working with the Loddon-Mallee Vaccination Hub based at Bendigo Health, Kyneton Health’s COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic administers the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to children aged between 5 and 11 years. They will receive a smaller dose of vaccine created specifically for their age group, as per government guidelines.
Central Highlands Rural Health Director of Clinical Services, Susan Jennings said:
“We’re really pleased to invite families into our clinic so that children aged 5-11 years can receive their COVID-19 vaccinations. This is an important step in reducing the spread of COVID-19, protecting children from getting sick with COVID-19 and keeping schools open.”
“Now is the time to pick up the phone or jump on the website and make a booking – whether that’s with our clinic, a state-run vaccination centre, a pharmacy or your local GP. The important message stays the same – everyone in our community should ‘Get the Jab Done’!”
We have a range of resources to assist parents and children through the process. If you have questions about vaccinating your child against COVID-19 please book a consultation with your GP for medical advice.
The COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Kyneton Health offers a limited number of appointments on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 7-25 Caroline Chisholm Drive, Kyneton.
Children received a warm welcome to the Enchanted Forest of Protection from Central Highlands executives.
