Moderna available at Wodonga Vaccination Hub
Sunday, 10 October 2021 / Albury Wodonga Health
Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations will be available at Albury Wodonga Health’s Wodonga Vaccination Hub from Tuesday 12 October.
This is in addition to AstraZeneca and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations that the hub already provides.
Moderna can be given to people aged 12 and over, including those that are immunocompromised, pregnant or breastfeeding. It is a two-dose vaccine, with the second dose given after four weeks.
Like the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, Moderna is an mRNA vaccine, and highly effective in protecting people from severe COVID-19.
AWH’s executive director of public health Lucie Shanahan said it was pleasing to be able to extend the availability of vaccines in Albury-Wodonga.
“We are very pleased that we now have Moderna vaccinations available at the hub,” she said.
“I urge residents not yet vaccinated to make a booking to keep yourself, your family and our community safe.”
There are a number of pharmacies and medical centres providing vaccines. A list of these is available at www.awh.org.au.
