Glenroy College is hosting a pop-up Covid vaccination clinic this weekend to help protect our community against the Covid-19 virus. And you’re all invited to come and get vaccinated!
The clinic will operate from inside the Glenroy College Performing Arts Centre (PAC), near the gym, from 1 to 3 October, 2021. It is open to everyone in the local community aged 12 years and over, including Glenroy College staff and students and all their family members.
On Friday, vaccines will be available between 4pm and 8pm while on Saturday and Sunday, the hub will operate from 10am to 6pm. Both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines will be available at the centre over the weekend.
Walk in, get vaccinated
No appointments are needed to get a vaccine at the Glenroy College pop-up centre. You can simply walk in and be vaccinated on the spot. Interpreters will be available onsite over the weekend to help translate for you, if required.
Bookings are also available via the official vaccination hotline on 1800 675 398 if you prefer to call first. Just make sure to tell the operator that you want to receive your vaccination at the Glenroy College vaccine clinic when you make the booking. You can access a phone interpreter by calling ‘0’ when your call is connected.
How to access the PAC
The best way to access the PAC is via the College’s Cardinal Rd entry. Please make sure to wear a mask and social distance from others when you arrive for your vaccination. It’s a good idea to bring your Medicare card if you have one and some form of photo identification.
Vaccines protect you and your family
Remember, the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from Covid-19 is to be vaccinated. The vaccinations are provided free to everyone aged over 12 years. School staff must be fully vaccinated by 29 November, unless they have a valid exemption, the State Government recently announced.
Mandatory vaccines are also required for people who work in construction, childcare, aged care and health care.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our College community safe and Covid-free. We look forward to welcoming all our staff and students back to onsite learning soon.
