Alpine Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

Update 20 October 2021

  • Moderna is available at the Alpine Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics from Saturday 23 October for people aged 12 and over.
  • Third dose vaccines for people who are severely immunocompromised will be available at Alpine Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics from Saturday 23 October. Eligible people will be able to walk up to Victorian vaccination centres administering the Moderna vaccine and get vaccinated without an appointment.  People who are eligible for a third dose must sign an eligibility declaration form [PDF] declaring they are severely immunocompromised and have already received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • To support people with disabilities to get their COVID-19 vaccine, walk in's are available at any State Vaccination Clinic including Alpine Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics.
  • If you are booking through the Victorian Government COVID-19 Hotline 1800 675 398 or on the online portal, some delays may occur during peak times. Please check the portal regularly as new appointments become available at short notice.

The Alpine Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics are now operating 5 days a week by appointment only. These local mobile clinics will provide greater access to the vaccines for our local communities.

If you are eligible, please get vaccinated, protect yourself and your loved ones and we can start to get back to doing the things we all love.

Every unvaccinated Victorian with COVID-19 is far more likely to get seriously unwell, require hospitalisation, or even die – particularly if they are older Victorians.

Third dose for the severely immunocompromised

Use of a third primary dose of COVID-19 vaccine in individuals who are severely immunocompromised

Third dose vaccines for people who are severely immunocompromised will be available at Alpine Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics from Saturday 23 October

  • The Australian Technical Advisory Group (ATAGI) has released a statement on 8 October recommending a third primary dose of the COVID-19 vaccine for individuals that are severely immunocompromised.
  • People who are eligible for a third dose must sign an eligibility declaration form [PDF] declaring they are severely immunocompromised and have already received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • The recommended interval for the third dose is 2 to 6 months after the second dose of vaccine. A minimum interval of 4 weeks may be considered in exceptional circumstances (e.g., anticipated intensification of immunosuppression, outbreaks). People who have had a second dose more than 6 months ago should receive a third dose whenever feasible.
  • Moderna is offered as the third dose vaccine at Victorian vaccination centres and can be accessed via walk up at selected sites.  GPs, pharmacies and community health organisations can also provide a third dose.
  • Third dose vaccines will be available from Saturday 16 October. Eligible people who are severely immunocompromised will be able to walk up to Victorian vaccination centres administering the Moderna vaccine and get vaccinated without an appointment.  
  • This applies to anyone aged 12 years or older, with certain conditions and therapies that lead to people being severely immunocompromised. Conditions and therapies include:
    • active haematological malignancy
    • solid organ transplant with immunosuppressive therapy
    • haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients or chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy within 2 years of transplantation
    • immunosuppressive therapies including:
      • high dose corticosteroid treatment
      • multiple immunosuppressants
      • selected conventional synthetic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs
      • biologic and targeted therapies.
    • primary immunodeficiency
    • advanced or untreated HIV with CD4 counts less than 250
    • long-term haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
  • Currently no other cohort is eligible for a third dose or booster dose at state vaccination centres.
