After more than six months operating Monash Health’s whole of life immunisation clinic as a drive-in service, the team will return to Monash Medical Centre Clayton from Monday 16 November.
During this time, the team immunised more than 5,500 members of our community, and also:
- Delivered vaccines to 50 research patients safely, ensuring they could continue in their respective trials.
- Facilitated clinics for the administration of Palivizumab to protect high risk cardiac and respiratory infants.
- Continued Bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) clinics via telehealth
- Administered more than 3,150 influenza vaccinations
“We are so proud we were able to change the model of care back in April as part of our response to COVID-19. The drive-in immunisation clinic meant the community could continue to receive scheduled and recommended vaccines safely and from the comfort and safety of their car.”
“Thank you to the City of Monash for providing us with Clayton Hall, and the entire Monash Health Immunisation team for their hard work and dedication to our community through a challenging time. We look forward to returning to Monash Medical Centre” said Nurse Manager for Monash Immunisation, Joanne Hickman.
The team has also been selected to present on their work at an upcoming Australasian COVID-19 Virtual Conference run by the Public Health Association of Australia.
Congratulations to everyone involved in the rapid implementation of this innovative service.
