Bendigo Health have partnered with Loddon Shire Council to deliver JEV vaccination clinics across the municipality.
Loddon Shire residents and those working in Loddon Shire who:
• Spend significant time outdoors (four or more hours per day), for unavoidable work, recreation, education or other essential activities. OR
• Are living in temporary or flood damaged accommodation (e.g. camps, tents, dwellings exposed to the external environment) that place them at increased risk of mosquito bites, OR
• Are engaged in the prolonged outdoor recovery efforts (clean up) or stagnant water following floods, are eligible to receive a JEV vaccination.
JEV is a rare but potentially serious infection of the brain spread to humans through mosquito bites.
If you meet the above criteria and wish to receive a vaccination clinics are being held as follows
Locations may be able to take limited walk-ins on the day, but as there is a state wide shortage of the JEV Vaccination BOOKINGS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Bookings can be made by finding the relevant clinic on the Bendigo Health outreach vaccination webpage by using this web link https://bendigohealth.org.au/outreachvaccination/ or by scanning the below QR code.
