Booking required for immunisation services

Greater Shepparton City Council has modified the way immunisations are conducted with appointments a necessity to minimise the risks associated with COVID-19 and to comply with restrictions in relation to gatherings.

Environmental Health Team Leader Lisa Eade said Council is taking every precaution to ensure we comply with the restrictions on gatherings at all times. “If a baby or child is being immunised this includes the nurses, one adult, and of course the child,” said Ms Eade. “Please do not bring other family or carers to the session.”

“We also cannot see anyone who does not have an appointment. If you arrive without a booking you will not be seen. Your understanding would be very much appreciated.”

“We place the highest importance on the health of our community and our staff and we need to follow the instructions provided by Federal and State governments,” she said. “It is critical that we follow the restrictions on gatherings and look after the vulnerable and compromised in our community.”

If you are unwell (have a fever, cough and shortness of breath), have travelled overseas in the last 14 days or have been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, please do not attend a session. Please contact Council to re-schedule your booking.
