Vaccination is not mandatory, but it is highly encouraged, except where your medical practitioner advises you otherwise. 
 

An on-site vaccination clinic is coming to Hume Valley Primary School, 23 Koroit Avenue, Dallas, Vic, 3047 on the following dates:

 

  • Friday, 4 February, 4pm – 8pm
  • Saturday, 5 February, 9am – 4pm

What to bring 

Students and families should bring the following to the on-site clinic:  

 

We have written to your child to provide them with information about the details of the on-site vaccination clinic.  

Please speak to your doctor if you have any questions about vaccination and your child and your own individual health circumstances. 

 

Consent 

As a parent or carer, you can complete a consent from for COVID-19 vaccination for your child to take with them, or you can attend with your child to provide consent in person. 

 

Older students can consent to vaccination themselves if a health professional assesses them to be a mature minor. That is that the health professional assesses that they understand the information relevant to the decision to be vaccinated and the effect of that decision.   

 

More information 

If you and your child cannot attend the on-site vaccination clinic, you can book and receive your COVID-19 vaccine at a vaccination centre, participating GP clinics, pharmacies or community health services.  

 
You and your child can find a Commonwealth vaccination centre or participating GP, pharmacy or community health service through the Vaccine Clinic Finder. You can book your appointment online or by calling the vaccine provider nearest to you.  To find a state vaccination centre and opening times, visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au.

COVID-19 vaccines are an essential protection against serious illness. Vaccination is not mandatory, but it is highly encouraged, except where your medical practitioner advises you otherwise. If you have a pre-existing medical condition or have questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine you and your parents/guardians or carers should speak to your GP or regular health professional.

 

Parents/guardians and carers we encourage you to help your child to book and

support them to attend their appointment. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect our school community from further outbreaks and the spread of COVID-19.
