Where to get tested locally


Public exposure sites

The Department of Health is maintaining a list of public locations where there was a risk of COVID-19 transmission. Please follow the Department's advice if you have been to a site during the exposure period.


Where to get vaccinated 

Barwon Health's Community Vaccination Hub at Norlane is taking bookings and a select number of walk-ins.

Alternatively, view other vaccination centres, seek out your closest respiratory clinic or ask your doctor for advice.

You can also get your COVID-19 vaccine through participating doctor's clinics, pharmacies, or community health services.


Vaccination requirements

Under current restrictions, many venues can only open if all staff are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and if the venue is checking that everyone aged 16 and over who attends is fully vaccinated or has a medical exemption.

Further details on these restrictions can be found here.

There are a number of ways you can get proof of your vaccination to help with the check-in process.
