Year 12 students, teachers and examiners are being given priority access to COVID-19 vaccines as part of a state-wide vaccination blitz to ensure senior students are able to take their exams.

The priority vaccination program runs from Tuesday 7 September until Friday 17 September.

Year 12 students will be given priority booking access at our state-run clinics, as will their teachers and examiners.

Students and teachers must book an appointment, as walk-ins are not available as part of this blitz.

Follow this link to make an appointment.

BRHS will put on a full day vaccination clinic for students and teachers only at the Bairnsdale City Oval clinic on Thursday, 9 Sept.

The Department of Health and the Department of Education will work directly with schools, and students and parents will receive the advice on how to arrange a booking through their schools.
