COVID-19 Testing and Vaccinations

Victoria will move to circuit breaker restrictions from 11:59pm Thursday 27 May. As a result, there will be only 5 reasons to leave home: to get food and supplies, undertake authorised work, provide care and caregiving, exercise and to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

These settings will remain in place until at least 11:59pm on 3 June. The restrictions have been introduced following a COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne. Thousands of people across Victoria have been identified as close contacts to the positive cases. 

Delays on the Victorian Coronavirus Hotline to book your COVID-19 vaccine

There is a very high volume of calls to the COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline. If you are trying to book an appointment at a vaccination centre, you may experience significant delays.

Alternatively, the information you are seeking may be available online. Visit Book your vaccine appointment.

Below is some essential information on local testing and vaccination arrangements for the next few days. As the outbreak is an evolving situation, times for testing and vaccination may change at short notice.
