We received the following information from the Department of Education & Training. This applies to some of our Year 6 students.
“As part of the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out, from Monday, 13 September, all Victorians aged 12 and older eligible to book and receive a COVID-19 vaccine at a state vaccination centre, a Commonwealth vaccination centre, or through a GP clinic, pharmacy or community health service. Vaccination bookings for students should be made by following the instructions under the heading ‘How to book an appointment’.
Vaccination is not mandatory but is strongly encouraged. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect our school community from further outbreaks and the spread of COVID-19.
The Victorian Government’s aim is to provide an opportunity for all children aged 12 years and older to receive at least one vaccine dose by the end of the school year.”
