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

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.

When should I get tested?

- chills or sweats
- sore throat
- shortness of breath
- runny nose
- loss or change in sense of smell or taste.
Some people may also experience headache, muscle soreness, stuffy nose, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
