COVID-19 Victorian Update – Vaccinations for Interpreters
Last update: 2nd June 2021, 10AM AEST
Interpreters that visit healthcare settings are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccines are free, safe and voluntary – the more people who are vaccinated, the greater the protection for those vaccinated and the whole community.
Vaccination clinics are available in convenient locations across Victoria.
Depending on your age, you will be provided with either the AstraZeneca vaccine or the Pfizer vaccine.
- If you are under 50 years of age, you can receive the Pfizer vaccine by booking at a State vaccination centre.
- If you are aged 50 years and over, you can receive the AstraZeneca vaccine through a State vaccination centre or participating general practice, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation or General Practice Respiratory Clinic.
You are eligible for the vaccine regardless of your visa status.
For further details on how to book your appointment and attend a clinic please see attached Information for Interpreters.
The attached letter can be used as proof of your eligibility when attending your vaccination appointment.
If you have any concerns about your health and getting the COVID-19 vaccine, please speak to your general practitioner or other health professional.
