This clinic welcomes all, particularly supplying vaccinations to these experiencing homelessness, worldwide pupils and other individuals without having Medicare, and anybody else who has experienced issue accessing the vaccination application so considerably.
The nurses explained to me that persons lined up from 3am on the 1st working day it opened.
Thanks to the Metropolis of Melbourne, Co-Ground is also supplying cost-free espresso and treats, as effectively as a friendly experience and time to chat, to people today who are sleeping tough although they are waiting. These persons are prioritised in the queue to make certain they don’t confront any further barriers to receiving their jab.
Employees from Cohealth have also carried out an amazing position environment up pop-up vaccination clinics at public housing towers in Melbourne’s inner-city suburbs, and furnishing wellness advice in community languages, a little something we’re really proud to assistance.
