A NEW COVID-19 vaccination site has opened at the Bayside Shopping Centre.
The vaccine clinic is located next to Rebel sport. It is open from 9.30am-5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, and from 11.30am to 7pm on Thursdays and Fridays.
Pfizer jabs are available by appointment only for people over the age of 40. Walk-in appointments can be made for AstraZeneca vaccinations for people over 60.
Existing coronavirus vaccine bookings made for John Madder Hall and Theatre 10 at Frankston Hospital will be moved to the Bayside site. Anyone with bookings at the old site from 7:30am to 9:30pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and 7:30am-11:30am Thursday and Friday can walk into the Bayside clinic anytime during the day of their original appointment for the jab. All other appointments will take place at their original time but at Bayside Shopping Centre instead.
Peninsula Health executive director operations, Helen Cooper, said “the Frankston Community Vaccination Hub at Bayside Centre opened on 6 July. Vaccinations at the clinic are initially prioritising health and aged care workers, and people aged over 60.”
“If you had an appointment at John Madder Hall or Theatre 10 at Frankston Hospital, your appointment will be moved to the Hub. You should have received a text message with new appointment details. If you are not sure when your appointment is or where to go, you can call the Victorian Department of Health Hotline. All bookings for the clinic are through the Department of Health Hotline, or online bookings portal on the Department of Health website.”
Peninsula Health’s COVID-19 testing clinic at Frankston Hospital also reopened last week after closing for resurfacing works. It is accessible via Yuille Street from 8.30am-4pm, seven days a week.
