UFS is now accepting bookings for COVID-19 vaccines for people eligible under Phase 1b of the roll-out program.

The new vaccination clinic is located at 18 Drummond Street North, opposite the Ballarat Base Hospital.

The clinic will open Wednesday 24 March and will operate from 9am to 5.30pm on weekdays and from 9am to 4pm on weekends. Over Easter, the clinic will close at 3pm on Good Friday, and operate normal hours for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Vaccination is free, is strictly by appointment only and is open only to those currently eligible. To check eligibility visit covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au

Those eligible are now able to book online via ufs.com.au/vaccine. Patients unable to book online can phone 4320 0891, however as we anticipate there will be high demand for appointments, those phoning may need to be patient.

Please be aware that we do require masks to be worn by all patients at the clinic.

UFS continues to operate the COVID-19 testing clinic from its current location at 15 Errard Street North, Ballarat, which is separate to the dedicated vaccination clinic.
