CASEY Fields will play host to a COVID-19 vaccination pop-up clinic this weekend, as the Victorian Government continues its efforts to protect the state.
The temporary clinic, which is a collaboration between several organisations, will be operating out of Melbourne’s indoor training facility (160 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne East) from Friday 15 October until Sunday 17 October.
The Victorian Department of Health, alongside Monash Health, will oversee its delivery, with the Demons, the City of Casey and Melbourne City FC supporting the initiative.
The pop-up hub will be open from 9am to 5pm on each day, with a mix of bookings and walk-ins available to local members, supporters and residents. Those coming down are welcome to wear their Dees colours, in support of the club and the local community.
There will be up to 1,000 doses administered each day, and both the Pzifer and Moderna vaccine will be on offer to all over 12 years of age.
Bookings can be made in one of the following ways:
- online at cvms.vic.gov.au, or
- by calling the Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398 (press 0 for an interpreter).
Attendees who get their first dose at Casey Fields will be supported to arrange their second vaccine dose on the day. Interpreters will be on-site to assist when required.
The three-day clinic comes as the Casey region recorded a significant increase in Coronavirus cases, while the rate of fully vaccinated people currently sits lower than the state’s average.
