Having safely and efficiently delivered over 2,000 vaccinations to our employees, the Casey Hospital COVID-19 vaccination clinic is closing at the end of the day on Friday, 23 April.
General Manager of Vaccination Clinics, Claire Pierce, thanked the team who had delivered an excellent and safe service to our employees at the Casey COVID-19 Vaccination clinic in recent weeks. She emphasised that the more than 2,000 vaccinations they gave with great care and efficiency were met with very positive feedback from their colleagues. The team can be proud, knowing they have contributed to keeping their colleagues protected from COVID-19.
From Monday, 26 April, St John of God Berwick Hospital will open its vaccination clinic to manage the second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine for our Casey employees. They will also offer vaccination to Monash Health employees who live and work locally.
If you have received your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine at Casey Hospital, you will be contacted by the St John of God team to organise your second dose.
The St John of God Berwick Hospital booking details are:
- Call 8784 5584 – the booking line is open 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday, and 8.00am to noon Saturday.

What happens if I’ve had my first vaccination at Casey Hospital?
If you’ve had your first vaccination at Casey Hospital and have a booking for your second after Friday, you will be contacted directly, and your second dose booking will be transferred and managed by the St John of God team.
Can I go to another Monash Health vaccination clinic for my second dose?
If you are 50 or over and have an existing booking at Casey Hospital’s COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic and wish to be vaccinated at one of the Monash Health vaccination clinics, you can cancel the existing booking through the existing Monash Health channels and rebook at Moorabbin or Kingston.
I am under 50 and have had my first dose of AstraZeneca. Can I swap to Pfizer?
It is not possible to switch vaccines if you have received AstraZeneca as your first dose. You must receive your second dose to ensure immunity.
If you have had the first dose of AstraZeneca without an adverse reaction, it is safe to receive your second dose regardless of age.
I’m under 50 and have not had my first dose of vaccine. What do I do?
If you are under 50 and have not received the first dose of AstraZeneca, recent Government guidelines recommend you receive the Pfizer vaccine. You can make a booking at the Clayton or Dandenong clinics to receive the Government-recommended Pfizer vaccine.
