Vaccination blitz for VCE students

As part of the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out, all school staff and all students aged 16 and over are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. 

To help support the safe conduct of end-of-year exams, the Victorian Government have announced a vaccination blitz for final year school students, their teachers and for VCE exam supervisors and assessors.

The blitz will begin on 7 September and continue until 17 September. During the blitz, final year students, their teachers and VCE exam supervisors and assessors will have access to priority timeslots to attend their vaccination appointment at a vaccination centre.

Final year students, their teachers and VCE exam supervisors and assessors will  be able to book their first and second doses via a dedicated appointment booking hotline. The Department of Health will release details of the dedicated phone number and session information on Friday, 3 September. Bookings will open on Monday, 6 September.

These additional pathways will help support a faster booking process and minimise absence for students during their schooling hours.

Please note vaccinations are not compulsory to sit/supervise exams but strongly encouraged.

Vaccination information packs have also been distributed to staff, students and parents.
