1 October Update: The Dandenong Pop-up Clinic is now administering Moderna and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines.
Moderna, like Pfizer, is a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine. Moderna is safe and highly effective in protecting you against getting COVID-19.
With two doses of the Moderna vaccine, you are far less likely to get very sick or need to go to hospital with COVID-19 disease. This high level of protection also applies to new variants of COVID-19, such as the Delta variant. The Moderna vaccine is safe in pregnancy and in children from 12 years of age.
The Moderna vaccine has been successfully rolled out in many countries across the world including the United States of America, the United Kingdom, France, and Singapore.
On 16 September 2021, the Monash Health South East Public Health Unit will open a new ‘pop-up’ COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Palm Plaza in Dandenong for the community.
The Palm Plaza Vaccination Clinic will operate from 9am to 5pm, seven days a week for a limited time. Please be aware that lines may close early due to demand.
Local residents can walk-in to the vaccination clinic, no bookings are required. The pop-up clinic will have both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines.
The Palm Plaza Vaccination Clinic will have interpreters and interpreter services available to support local residents who attend.
The vaccination is free, safe and the best way to protect yourself, your family and community from COVID-19.
A reminder that if you have a Medicare card to please bring it with you. If you do not have a Medicare card, you can still receive a vaccine, just please bring ID such as a driver licence or passport.
Please be aware that the waiting area is outside, so please bring anything you may need such as water, sun protection or an umbrella with you.
If you have any symptoms, please get tested, isolate and wait to receive a negative result before attending the vaccination clinic. For the latest information on getting tested for COVID-19, please visit the Victorian Government’s Where to get tested webpage.
