**Wednesday 26th January 2022** - Lyndale Greens Primary School on-site vaccination clinic
Dear Parents and Carers,
As part of the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out, all Victorians aged 5 years and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated is the best way you can protect yourself, your family and our school community from further outbreaks and the spread of COVID-19.
Vaccination is not mandatory, but it is highly encouraged, except where your medical practitioner advises you otherwise.
An on-site vaccination clinic is coming to Lyndale Greens Primary School, 1 - 19 Oakwood Avenue Dandenong North 3175 on the following dates in the school hall:
- 29 January between 9am and 4pm
- 30 January between 9am and 4pm
Students and their families are strongly encouraged to visit the on-site vaccination clinic during the designated times.
There is no need to book, you can walk in to get vaccinated. This clinic is accessible to all, including people with disabilities.
Vaccinations will be available to all students, school community and the general public.
What to bring
Students and families should bring the following to the on-site clinic:
• a face mask
• photo identification
• a Medicare number or Individual Healthcare Identifier number, if you have one.
We have written to your child to provide them with information about the details of the on-site vaccination clinic.
Please speak to your doctor if you have any questions about vaccination and your child and your own individual health circumstances.
As a parent or carer, you can complete a consent form for COVID-19 vaccination for your child to take with them, or you can attend with your child to provide consent in person.
Older students can consent to vaccination themselves if a health professional assesses them to be a mature minor. That is that the health professional assesses that they understand the information relevant to the decision to be vaccinated and the effect of that decision.
If you and your child cannot attend the on-site vaccination clinic, you can book and receive your COVID-19 vaccine at a vaccination centre, participating GP clinics, pharmacies or community health services.
You and your child can find a Commonwealth vaccination centre or participating GP, pharmacy or community health service through the Vaccine Clinic Finder. You can book your appointment online or by calling the vaccine provider nearest to you. To find a state vaccination centre and opening times, visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au.
Translated advice about the vaccines is also available at coronavirus.vic.gov.au.
