Drive-thru COVID testing

Testing to open on McCallum St tomorrow

From tomorrow [02/06] the Swan Hill District Health (SHDH) COVID-19 testing clinic will relocate to a drive-through service located on McCallum Street, Swan Hill.

This change is being implemented to increase capacity for delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations through the SHDH Respiratory Clinic at 28 High Street, Swan Hill.

“Our current model of having our testing and vaccination clinics co-located is limiting the number of vaccines we can deliver each day” SHDH Chief Executive Officer Peter Abraham said.

Moving the testing clinic to a drive-through model will allow for flexibility and will be monitored in line with demand over the coming weeks.

Mr Abraham highlighted that the recent strong desire of the community to be vaccinated has resulted in the vaccination clinic experiencing a significant increase in wait times to access a vaccination “And we only expect the demand to increase as we move to being able to deliver Pfizer vaccine to those aged 40-49, hopefully in the coming weeks.”

A date for when SHDH will receive doses of the Pfizer vaccine, enabling it to commence vaccinations for 40-49 year old age group, has not been finalised.
