BRMC Vaccination Hub

On Saturday 12 February, BRMC in partnership with Ballarat Health Services and Women’s Health Grampians held their ninth Pop-Up Vaccination Hub at the Ballarat Welcome Centre. 93 members of our multicultural communities, including 26 young children came along for their 1st, 2nd or booster shots. If you missed our clinic, check our website on where you can go to get yours.

Thank you to all the children and parents that have helped protect themselves, their families and the community.
