Overview of Covid restrictions now online

The Victorian Government has made available a useful “table of restrictions” that provides a full summary of all Covid-related restrictions across the State, announced by the Acting Premier on Wednesday 16 June.

This summary answers many questions people have about the details of what is “in” and what is “out” at present.

The table can be downloaded from this location: https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/statement-acting-premier-4

Happy Nurses Day!

Nurses are such an important part of our organisation and play a key role in tackling major health challenges, in hospitals and out in the community. They do more than care for people and help them cope with illness – they advocate for better care and improve public health.

This international Nurses Day, let’s hear from people with firsthand experience.

Where to get your Covid vaccination

A list of all clinics currently offering Covid-19 vaccinations has been provided by the Commonwealth Government, which is in charge of the national vaccine distribution process.

The list can be found by going to the ‘eligibility checker’ provided on the Department of Health website: https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility

You will need to go through the process of entering your details to confirm (1) whether you are eligible to get your vaccination yet, and (2) where you can go to book and receive your vaccination.

Covid vaccines at Gateway Health

Gateway Health is one of the locations where vaccinations will be given against Covid 19 – but not until late April at least.

Though vaccinations against Covid-19 start in Victoria from Monday 22 March 2021, Gateway Health has been advised it will not receive doses for local use for some weeks.

Gateway Health GP Clinics in Wangaratta and Wodonga will be administering the AstraZeneca vaccine developed in the UK.

A small number of other clinics in Wangaratta and Albury Wodonga will also be providing these vaccinations.

Please note that there will be very limited supplies in the early stages while vaccine supplies are being imported. Priority is being given to people in the highest at-risk categories first.
