Australia’s first drive-through vaccination hub to be set up in Melton, AZ jab now available to under 40s at state-run clinics

Australia’s first drive-through vaccination hub will be set up at a former Bunnings site in Melton

“This is a fantastic addition to our existing state infrastructure, it’ll be a really good and convenient, simple, safe way for Victorians to get vaccinated.”

Ms Bromley also said children who were aged between 12 and 15 and had specified medical conditions or who were Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, would be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine at state-run clinics.

“Only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for the 12-to-15 year age group,” she said.

“Children, adolescents, young adults with underlying medical conditions do have an increased likelihood of developing severe disease and complications with COVID-19.”

The hub will do a soft launch by invitation-only on Sunday, but will be open for bookings from Monday 09th AUG 2021.

It will be located at the former Bunnings Warehouse at 149 Barries Road in Melton, in Melbourne’s northwest.
