Victorians with disabilities eligible for COVID-19 vaccines without an appointment
Victorians with disabilities will be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 without an appointment at state-run hubs from tomorrow.
Ten dedicated disability vaccination pop-ups will be set up in local government areas of concern.
The changes come as part of a $5 million state government investment to boost vaccination rates among people with disabilities.
Vaccination rates among Victorians living with disabilities are lagging behind the general population.
On 30 September more than 71 per cent of NDIS participants aged over 16 had received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
