COVID-19 vaccinations at Castlemaine Health
Castlemaine Health’s COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic is open for business. The clinic is open to the general public. Please remember to bring your Medicare Card and identification showing your date of birth along with you.
News alert (24 June)
From Monday, 5 July vaccine supply throughout the Loddon Mallee region will be restricted due to a shortage of supply in Victoria. This is a Commonwealth allocation issue with demand for vaccine currently greater than supply.
This situation is likely to continue throughout July. The focus during this time will be to vaccinate vulnerable/priority groups. In response to reduced availability, from 5 July, clinic hours will be changed to 9am to 1pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for all new bookings.
Please continue to register your expression of interest via the bookings system link below. As soon as supply increases, you’ll be contacted in order of registration/priority group. Everyone with a current booking for a second dose will proceed. For those in the 50-59 age group who have a booking for Astra Zeneca, you will be vaccinated with Pfizer as per Government guidelines.
If you can’t attend your appointment for any reason, please call 5471 3555 (option 5) and leave a message to let the team know. Vaccine is drawn up in advance of appointments so results in wastage if we’re not informed promptly.
The clinic runs 9am to 12.45pm, then 1.30pm to 2.30pm, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
From Monday, 5 July clinic hours will change to 9am to 1pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Limited walk-ins are available until noon dependent on vaccine availability (Astra Zeneca only).
