COVID-19 Vaccine information

You can check your eligibility for being vaccinated here

You can download fact sheets by clicking here.

Important information:

The Wodonga Vaccination Hub offers AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna.

You need three separate doses (injections) of the vaccine to complete the course of vaccination and give you the best level of protection against COVID-19.

You should not receive a vaccination within seven days of being vaccinated for the flu. This advice was updated in June 2021.

Vaccines do not contain milk, egg, latex, or pork products.


​​Vaccine rollout in the region

Albury Wodonga Health and its sub-hubs have delivered more than 110,000 COVID-19 vaccines.
The network is managing its vaccine allocation carefully to ensure that we can vaccinate as many citizens as possible and as safely as possible.
The AWH hub has capacity to do about 500 doses per day and Wangaratta about 300 per day. 


Why you should get vaccinated

By getting vaccinated, you are protecting your health, and also helping protect your family, friends and community.

  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you from getting sick from COVID-19. The vaccines are very effective at preventing serious illness and death due to COVID-19.
  • As more people get vaccinated, the more the community is protected. This also makes it harder for COVID-19 to spread.
  • By limiting the spread of COVID-19, we can also reduce the risk that new variants (strains of COVID-19) could emerge.

Vaccine safety

  • Before vaccines are made available in Australia, they need to pass strict safety standards set by Australia’s independent medicines regulator, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
