A number of pop-up vaccine hubs will run across Brimbank the next couple of weeks to help increase the vaccine rate in the municipality.

The two school pops-up will run this weekend, while the state government is setting up 30 vaccination centres across Victoria.

The state government centres, which will be walk up Pfizer clinics, have been selected based on analysis of LGAs where vaccination rates are lower, particularly among young people.

One of the centres that will run next week is at headspace in Sunshine.

This weekend there will be a pop-up vaccine hub at Victoria University Secondary College St Albans Campus.

It will be open on Saturday between 4pm and 7pm and Sunday between 9.30am and 5pm.

There will also be one at Copperfield College’s Sydenham campus.

The clinic will offer the Pfizer on Saturday between 10am 6pm and Sunday 10am and 5pm.

Health Minister Martin Foley said they would look at all options to get people vaccinated.

“Whether it’s vaccinations in local suburbs, restaurants, schools, community facilities – or even through the Royal Flying Doctor Service – absolutely nothing is off the table in our final push for more jabs in more arms.”
